According to BusinessGreen, George Osborne believes shale gas production could create wealth funds for north of England. A plan to generate new shale gas tax revenue could be deployed as a UK sovereign wealth fund. Ed Davey, energy and climate change secretary, said that the fund could be set-up once commercial production Starts. He said, “It’s about storing the financial benefits of shale production and putting it towards a low-carbon energy future. He went on to add, “Its part of our strategy to strengthen our security of supply in a cost-effective way”. According to a spokeswoman at the DECC (Department of Energy and Climate Change), the fund size will be decided by the scale of resources. She also stated that the benefits to the communities, who host shale gas production, are an addition to the existing on offer – lump sum of £100,000 for each test completed successfully, plus 1% […]

Experts at the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) have made it be known promises of lower prices were “lacking in evidence” and were “hype”. The Whitehall Treasury Department continued with the emphasis Shale Gas and its potential was “too big to ignore” The UKERC authored report expressed concerns of Shale Gas, which is a natural form gas extracted from rocks deep underground by machine and chemicals (fracking), was at a stage too early to conclude its viability. They went on to further state Shale Gas was unlikely to give a noticeable difference in energy prices experienced by householders or to the security of future supplies. Those that are in favour of fracking point to America and exclaim as the fall in energy prices in the US to where it has now become a net exporter of gas. On the reverse, critics cite the environmental damage and consequence fracking could have […]

Energy secretary says lack of turbines will raise consumer bills and Tory ideological stance is putting off investors The Conservative party’s opposition to onshore wind turbines risks undermining the creation of British jobs since new data showed 15,400 people are now employed in the wind power industry, warns energy secretary Ed Davey. While wind supplied 9% of all UK electricity, there has been a 70% rise in jobs in the wind power industry since 2010 according to the data from trade body RenewableUK. The wind power industry attracted £2.6bn of investment in 2013-14, of which £1.1bn remained in the UK. As wind is the cheapest clean energy, new British jobs will be undermined and customer bills will increase because of that the Conservative party’s “ideological” opposition to onshore turbines says Davey. “We have had a major leap forward in recent years and there is a really good story to tell,” […]
