star this property answer text <p>During the last five years, the Department has co-funded, with Defra, the Met Office Hadley Centre Climate Programme, which delivers scientific evidence on climate variability and change. The effect of carbon dioxide on temperature and climate change is one of the many research topics covered by the programme. More information can be found on the programme website: <a href="http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/publicsector/climate-programme" target="_blank">http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/publicsector/climate-programme</a>.</p><p>In addition, the Department has, since 2009, financially supported two separate phases of the AVOID Research Programme (2009-2013 and 2014-2016), both of which have involved rigorous examination of the effect of carbon dioxide on temperature and climate change. Reports summarising the analyses are available on the programme website: <a href="http://www.avoid.uk.net/" target="_blank">www.avoid.uk.net</a>.</p><p> </p> more like this

National Grid has procured 3.6GW of reserve capacity for this coming winter. Looking further ahead, the Capacity Market is designed to drive new investment to help keep the lights on, as well as getting the best out of our existing power stations and we have recently consulted on proposals to introduce the Capacity Market a year early, from 2017/18. A response to the consultation will be published shortly</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Decisions on plant closures are commercial matters for the plant owners. However, we recently consulted on changes to the Capacity Market, which included proposals for an early Capacity Market auction for the 2017/18 delivery year to mitigate the security of supply impact of potential early plant closures. If we go ahead with this proposal, coal plants will be eligible to participate.</p><p> </p><p>On 18 November we announced plans to close all unabated coal-fired power stations by 2025. Achieving this goal would make the UK one of the first developed countries to deliver on a commitment to take coal off the system. However, we have been clear that we would only proceed with these plans if we are confident that the shift to new gas generation can be achieved within these timescales.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
