Powering the Future

At present in the UK we import approximately half of our gas needs from overseas and by 2030 this is forecast to increase to some 80%. Renewables, whilst an important and growing share of the electricity market, cannot meet all of the UK’s short term energy needs, with 80% of households using gas to heat their homes. Gas must play a role in the UK’s energy security for the medium term.

Domestically produced natural gas from shale would increase the UK’s energy self-sufficiency, reduce the CO2 emissions associated with importing Liquefied Natural Gas and secure investment and jobs for local communities across the country.
