Facing Facts in a Fast Changing Energy World
By Steven Fawkes
This year’s Energy Event occurs at a unique time - just as the UK is in the middle of a major and deeply controversial shift in its energy policy. The new government has made radical changes to subsidy regimes for renewables – some signaled in advance and some not – as well as changes to energy efficiency programmes. The changes to the subsidy schemes inevitably led to a howl of complaints even though to me the writing was on the wall several years ago, whatever government was elected. Although controversial the changes to renewables were inevitable as let’s face it investors had enjoyed high returns guaranteed by the tax payer for too long and we can’t continue subsidies for ever. Scrapping the Green Deal was probably the right thing to do as trying to modify the over-bureaucratic and expensive scheme to make it more effective probably would have just added more layers of complexity.
