Diversity Key to UK's Energy Future
The use of a diverse range of energy sources, from renewables to nuclear, should be the key the UK’s future energy policy, recommends a new report from the Council for Science and Technology (CST). Titled ‘An Electricity Supply Strategy for the UK ’, the report outlines a new strategic approach in response to changing energy sources and the challenge of climate change.
Key recommendations in the document include increasing development in renewable energy sources, management, storage and improving supply; and - somewhat controversially - not ruling out the option of nuclear energy.
The CST programme of work identified energy as a key issue and established a working group, under the leadership of Professor Michael Sterling (vice-chancellor of Birmingham University). The report is advice to the government to help it form future energy policy.
