Speaker: Tony Lodge, Research Fellow at the Centre for Policy Studies
The UK is facing an unprecedented “energy gap” with demand for electricity expected to outstrip supply by more than 40% within the next 10 years. And yet, despite the decision to end coal-fired power generation and phase out of several nuclear reactors, there are no plans to replace lost capacity. Many suggest that 30 new gas-fired power stations will be needed to make up the supply deficit. But these are just not being built and even the latest Government reforms are not sufficiently focused to encourage construction. Tony will discuss why urgent Government action is critical to address this challenge.
