Government talks up brown coal jobs and new power plants as alternative energy options but says coal miners fac바카라 프로그램e dire conditions
The government says it will be investing £4bn on new nuclear, renewable energy, solar, wind, gas, hydro, and landfill technology. It says nuclear energy has been proven cost effective but admits that it is unlikely to become a commercially viable source of energy. The renewable energy investment package will help tackle coal’s legacy and enable UK communities to generate 50% of their energy from renewables, according to plans unveiled in parliament on Wednesday.
“No coal plants currently operating are commercially viable so this will require major investment which we are doing to build new ones,” the new Energy Minister Andrea Leadsom, who is from the Liberal Democrats (LDP), said.
“I know coal miners in Wales are struggling to cope with what is coming. They have been using older coal-fired power plants for decades. They are finding the new generation of electricity they need is cheaper than it used to be. We must do whatever it takes to make sure the UK keeps delivering cheap, reliable and clean electricity.”
The government says new nuclear, wind and gas power plants are all viable. The green paper says all new power stations will have to meet national energy targets. It is currently considering investing up to £4bn for new nuclear, wind and gas plants. Some nuclear projects face the biggest hurdles but could be able to take five to six years to get going.
The green paper states that the government hopes to use its own £2bn investment to build 20,000 megawatts (MW) of wind, solar and other renewables by 2블라디보스톡 카지노020, with up to 600 GW by 2030.
It will invest in a third of its electric grid with 30 GW of wind generation capacity by 2030, with another 6 GW more by 2020 and 10 GW more by 2030. It will increase its electric transport fleet to 40 GW by 2020, and to up to 100 GW by 2030. The green paper states that up to 400GW of biomass could be imported into the country by 2030. The government says it will invest £3bn on fuel saving technology, such as fuel cells, to “save people money and their homes from expensive, unreliable, polluting fu먹튀 없는 카지노el”.
It says in the second half of the 2070s it will invest between £100 billion and £200 billion for a £1,000 charge on all electricity bills. It will introduce new generation of smart meters and smart buildings, and will create new green roofs and other insulation products
