Renewable power & energy
Significant changes to the power industry are anticipated over the next 20 years as the UK responds to the three strategic challenges of climate change, diminishing indigenous fossil reserves and proliferation of small-scale, distributed generation. The key implications, stimulated through policy and regulation, will include: More electricity will be generated from renewable sources; The electricity transmission and distribution infrastructure will require upgrading; Continued improvement in environmental performance of generating plant; New investment to sustain security of supply; Industrial, commercial and domestic consumers will be encouraged to achieve greater energy efficiency.
