Readers at DimWatt will all be aware that the UK Coalition is finally biting the bullet that New Labour was too timid, (cowardly is a better word), to address, namely the long overdue and thorough reform of the rules for energy trading.
You can read DECC's invitation to participate at http://www.decc.gov.uk/en/content/cms/consultations/emr/emr.aspx
DimWatt intends to be a proactive participant in the upcoming consultation process.
We are now pleased to bring your attention to the views of the Association of Electricity Producers of the UK, representing the interests of the incumbent generators.
We do not fully endorse these views, of course. But the views of those who have invested £billions already in the UK and are being asked to invest up to £100 billion more before 2020 are central to whether we will have a functioning and reasonably priced energy infrastructure during the next decade. Or, as we have very good reason t fear, a highly dysfunctional and extremely expensive system, focused more on emission reduction than keeping the UK a competitor in a multi-polar, highly globalized economy.
During the course of the the next few months we will be listening to you, our readers. If you have views, pleease participate. Your views will be listened to and acknowledged. These will help us formulate our own recommendations before the end of the consultation process.
We look forward to hearing from you.
