Unless the energy market framework is reformed, the UK’s carbon reduction goals will require a “massively expanded” role for government with knock on inefficiencies, a new report co-authored by a former top energy official has warned. The study from the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change said generators' growing reliance on the Contracts for Difference mechanism will mean they become “less and less responsive” to demand because of its in-built incentive to produce as much power as possible.

Renewables will account for about 95% of growth in global power-generation capacity up to the end of 2026, finds energy agency

It has been another record year for renewable energy, despite the Covid-19 pandemic and rising costs for raw materials around the world, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA).

About 290GW of new renewable energy generation capacity, mostly in the form of wind turbines and solar panels, has been installed around the world this year, beating the previous record last year. On current trends, renewable energy generating capacity will exceed that of fossil fuels and nuclear energy combined by 2026.

Problems with Western Link project bringing renewable energy from Scotland led to rise in energy bills

Two energy companies will pay a record £158m fine after delays to a major subsea power cable bringing renewable energy from Scotland to England and Wales caused home energy bills to rise.

National Grid and Scottish Power agreed to pay the penalty after an investigation by the industry regulator found many of Scotland’s windfarms were paid to turn off on windy days because there was no way to transmit the clean electricity to areas of high energy demand in the south of the UK.
