star this property answer text <p>In the Antarctic, there are two main forms of ice, glacial and sea ice, which, due to differences in measurement approaches, are assessed separately.</p><p>Sea ice, formed from freezing seawater, is highly variable on a year-to-year basis, and over the last 5 years (2012 - 2016) the annual average extent of sea ice has decreased by an average of about a quarter of a million square kilometres per year. In March 2017 the sea ice extent dropped to the lowest level observed since satellite monitoring began in 1978— at about 2 million square kilometres, or 27% below the mean annual minimum.</p><p>In the 5 years to mid-2016, around 550 Gigatonnes of glacial ice, which is formed from snow, were lost from the ice sheet.</p><p>For a full understanding of changes in Antarctic ice, longer-term trends should be assessed. The 5<sup>th</sup> Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change showed that the Antarctic ice sheet has been losing mass over the past two decades and, while the long term trend in Antarctic sea ice extent has shown a small increase, there are strong regional differences, with extent increasing in some regions and decreasing in others.</p>

However, the strike prices for offshore wind and nuclear are not directly comparable given the differences in the characteristics of the technologies. Having a diverse generation mix is important for the UK’s security of supply. Nuclear also has a key role to play as part of a diverse generation mix delivering reliable low carbon electricity for consumers.</p><p> </p> more like this

Under this government we have seen significant investments in low carbon growth in sectors such as offshore wind, low emission vehicles, and green finance. It has been estimated that that clean energy investments in the UK have more than doubled since 2010, rising from $10.8 billion in 2010 to over $25 billion in 2016 (Bloomberg New Energy Finance, 2017).</p><p>As part of our Industrial Strategy, our investment in energy innovation will more than double to over £400 million per year by 2021. Much of this support will enable UK companies to invest in low carbon growth.</p><p>In addition, we have a range of policies in place to support UK businesses in reducing their energy use – for example through Climate Change Agreements, where businesses receive financial benefits in return for take up of energy efficiency measures.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy collect data from energy companies on the price of energy. This data is collected in confidence and therefore cannot be provided by individual supplier.</p><p>In real terms, the cost of an average annual UK domestic energy bill based on fixed consumption levels[1] for combined gas and standard electricity increased year on year from 2010 to 2014 but fell between 2014 and 2016. Overall from 2010 to 2016, bills increased by 8.4 per cent, assuming fixed consumption. However, over this time period average household consumption of gas and electricity also fell, in large part as a result of improved energy efficiency. Based on actual consumption, bills were slightly lower in 2016 than 2010, although this reflects colder than average temperatures in 2010.</p><p>Data based on fixed consumption can be found online at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/annual-domestic-energy-price-statistics" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/annual-domestic-energy-price-statistics</a>.

star this property answer text <p>After an increase in 2013, average household dual fuel bills declined in real terms between 2013 and 2016. Actions taken to tackle emissions have helped to reduce average energy bills for households as efficiency savings have more than offset the increased cost of supporting low carbon technologies.</p><p>The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) estimate that the cost of policies delivering cleaner energy, support for vulnerable households, and investing in upgrading our buildings account for around 12 per cent (around £140) of an average household dual fuel bill in 2016. However, these costs are on average more than offset by savings from improvements to the energy efficiency of people’s homes. The CCC estimate that household energy efficiency improvements made since 2008 are delivering average bill savings of around £290 per year, driven in large part by government policy.</p><p> </p> more like this
