    • Dr John Constable: GWPF Energy Editor

    Any doubt that increases in UK electricity prices are the result of energy and climate policies, rather than underlying wholesale energy costs, is firmly set aside by the recent announcement from Opus Energy that it must increase its prices to consumers by 7.5% even to those on Fixed Term contracts because of sharply rising “pass […]

    Many, including the British Prime Minister Theresa May, believe that the United Kingdom should continue to participate in the European Union’s Internal Energy Market. Whilst superficially both attractive and reasonable, this would only be in British interests if that EU market were genuinely liberal. Unfortunately, there are clear signs that the Internal Energy Market is […]

  • Environmentalists’ War On Fossil Fuels Is Helping Vladimir Putin

    • Date: 13/03/18
    • Drew Johnson, The Wall Street Journal

    The anti-fossil-fuels campaign is neither realistic nor environmentally sound. Blocking pipelines and other energy infrastructure projects raises costs on American families while forcing them to rely on Vladimir Putin to heat their homes.
