UK ENERGY POLICY TO BE ABOUT CUTTING COSTS, NOT EMISSIONS, SAYS gOVERNMENT CHIEF

This article explains the long overdue re-think. A spokesman said  the previous energy policies, which focused on balancing a trilemma of reducing energy emissions, cutting costs and delivering energy security, ‘had been the result of tensions’ between two Government departments. The current view now is that decarbonisation has a cost to domestic users and businesses and the focus now is on ‘how much can industry bear before it is too much, and decides to go elsewhere?’ So it seems that the penny has at last begun to drop and not before time!
