Green heat: not all going to plan

The scrapping of the UK's Green Deal and Zero Carbon Homes programmes has not helped its already poor showing on energy efficiency and green heat development, but recent studies look to new approaches which, if adopted, could improve the situation, most of them based on using green gas and heat networks.

UK energy policy – grinding to a halt?

Most of the UK's low carbon energy options are being hit hard by cuts, some, like CCS, almost terminally. Even offshore wind faces an uncertain future. Which leaves nuclear, and that looks even more uncertain.

Offshore wind – will the US catch up?

After a long delay and many local battles, offshore wind is at last getting started in the US, with maybe 10GW being put in place soon, though the EU (and the UK especially), Japan and China are well ahead in the race.
