Planning for the future

The UK energy industry faces a period of intense change. A number of factors working together show that we must be prepared to change: climate change, and of plant lifespan, large combustion plant directive (LCPD) and the UK as a net gas importer.

"The face of generation in the UK is set to change over the next few years as the need to replace obsolete plant, to meet greenhouse gas emission and other environmental targets and to provide security of energy supplies"

We recognise the importance of pursuing all available options to meet national energy objectives.
