Energy and Carbon

Investment in green power must be trebled in order for the world to avoid dangerous climate change, according to a new report by the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPC).

Anglian Water and Thames Water are among 70 companies from five continents to sign the Trillion Tonne communiqué, which urges governments to put policies in place to prevent the cumulative emission of more than a trillion tonnes of carbon.

A new report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is warning that the world is “ill-prepared” for climate change and that with high levels of warming the risks will be difficult to manage.

UK meets first carbon budget

The fifth annual statement of emissions required under section 16 of the Climate Change Act 2008 published by the Department for Energy and Climate Change shows that the UK has met its first carbon budget.

A portfolio of three tidal lagoon power plants would deliver large-scale low carbon power at a significantly cheaper price than offshore wind by 2021, according to a new economic study.

Europe must factor in the high levels of water used for cooling purposes in its thermal and nuclear power stations when it draws up its new 2030 climate and energy policy next week.

Anglian Water has become the first in the sector to achieve the Carbon Trust’s new water standard  and also the first company in the world to be certified by considering the water it supplies to others.

The Planning Inspectorate has accepted the Development Consent Order application for the Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon for consideration - the Lagoon has been designated as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project.

Tidal Lagoon Power Ltd (TLP) today took a major step towards realising one of the UK’s most game-changing infrastructure projects: the £850 million Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon - the largest tidal power plant in the world. 

The Able Marine Energy Park scheme has secured £14.9m from the Enterprise Zone Capital Grant Fund - enabling construction work to be brought forward.
