Energy Bill Briefing: Political update

This briefing provides an update on the three most important issues facing the Energy Bill: 

1. the need for a power sector decarbonisation target in 2030;
2. the lack of energy efficiency measures in the Bill;
3. the dangers of dependence on expensive, volatile, imported fossil fuels.
 
If these issues are addressed by the government before the Energy Bill is passed, we will have ensured that it delivers for the economy, consumers and the environment.

Point of No Return (2013)

This 2013 Greenpeace study reveals how a 'carbon bomb' of 14 planned fossil fuel projects alone would increase global carbon emissions by 20% by 2020 if given the go-ahead. These projects include expansion of Canadian and Venezuelan tar sands; open cast coal mines in China and Australia; offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico and Brazil - as well as other Ecocidal plans. This report explores the climate science as well as the clean energy alternatives.
