Energy markets and prices in the UK have long been a “political football”, so perhaps it was no surprise when re-nationalisation of distribution and transmission networks became a focus for Labour policy a few weeks ago. This followed the eventual introduction of the price cap for domestic customers on standard variable tariffs, these being the energy consumers who seldom, if ever, voted with their feet in the market for competitive energy supplies which have been around for 30 years or more.read more
Speaking at The Energyst Event, Richard Murphy, from the Energy Consortium, commented: “Energy users need to prepare for change and be open to change when it happens.” The biggest challenge for 2019 and beyond, he asserted, will be around climate change.
Climate and Carbon are high profile and we are constantly striving for new ways to meet our members’ needs, advance their strategies and secure new sources of low carbon / renewable power. The Education sector itself continues to be at the forefront of this challenge whether in the form of essential climate research, the development of mitigation technologies or the leading role of activists like Greta Thunberg - the Swedish schoolgirl inspiring a generation to take action. The Welsh Government has declared a Climate Emergency alongside other more localised institutions making their own declarations. More action is needed and whilst the terribly polite peaceful protests have come to a close from the Extinction Movement, what can we do to help support our members in driving change?read more
