NEW POWER: January issue

DATA: POWER PROJECT MONITOR

INTERVIEW: RACHEL CARY, GREEN ALLIANCE

“What’s causing the NGO community concern is that the [European Commission’s impact assessment for a new target] is only looking at 35, 40 or 45% [greenhouse gas] reduction – they are not even looking at 50% reduction, which the UK government has proposed,”

 “The carbon price floor is widely seen as just a crude way of raising money and you could have done the same things with regulation, but in a better way.”

ANALYSIS:  Trevor Loveday says the pending water bill could mean increased risk and cost for power project developers

“Power producers are concerned because their demand for coolant water cannot be changed without costly amendments to the plant”

“The source of greatest concern is the prospect of limited period abstraction licences, where the duration of the licence falls short of the lifetime of the power station holding the licence.”

This and much more in this month’s New Power.
