star this property answer text <p>Interconnection benefits UK consumers through the access of cheaper power from other countries when we need it, which enables greater competition between generators in both markets and improves price efficiency. In the same way that UK generators are charged to access our transmission network, continental generators exporting power to the UK will be subject to a range of charges and taxes in their own countries. UK generators can also benefit from exporting without paying for access to networks in other countries. Levying further charges on the power imported via an interconnector would reduce the benefits of accessing lower priced power from markets in other countries.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Clean growth is a key pillar of our industrial strategy. The low carbon sector already brings significant benefits to the UK, employing over 230,000 people directly and another 200,000 through supply chains. Within the sector, the UK has established world-leading expertise in several areas of green technology, including offshore wind and electric vehicles. Since 2012, over £56 billion has been invested in renewable energy generation in the UK. In 2016, one in five battery electric cars sold in the EU was made in the UK.</p><p>Certainty for the UK’s energy policy is provided by several frameworks, including the Climate Change Act 2008. This established the UK’s 2050 target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% on 1990 levels and a supporting framework of five year carbon budgets.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>As my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister and my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy have made clear, the UK is, and will remain, one of the most open economies in the world, including to foreign direct investment. We will also ensure that any investment serves the national interest. This deal, which involves a crucial part of the UK’s critical infrastructure, was no different. While national security considerations do not allow us to comment on the specific assessments we undertake, we continue to work collaboratively to understand and respond to all threats and hazards in the energy sector. This includes work across Government and with our agencies to understand the risk profiles, regular engagement with industry to develop mitigation strategies and ensuring that we have the knowledge and robust procedures in place to respond to challenges as they arise.</p> more like this

As a result we benefit from highly diverse and flexible sources of natural gas. These include indigenous production from the North Sea; six international gas pipelines with Norway, Belgium and the Netherlands; three Liquefied Natural Gas terminals that can bring gas from anywhere in the world; and a number of modern, responsive gas storage facilities. We are confident that market-led investment will continue to deliver secure gas supplies.</p> more like this

The economic impact of shale, both locally and nationally will depend on whether shale development is technically and commercially viable and on the level of production. To determine the potential of the industry and how development will proceed, we need exploration to go ahead.</p> more like this
