Nuclear getting the carbon-free recognition, but throwing gas in there as green is challenging to really get behind.

It might make subsidies to keep existing nuclear going more acceptable, but it is very difficult to see it creating the circumstances to build new nuclear fast enough to replace retiring capacity. The UK has just accepted tenders for enough wind and solar to produce as much power as three Hinckley points at a 57% lower price.

Similarly, the current fuel price alone of gas is at least twice as high as the fully absorbed power from a wind/solar/storage hybrid, with added supplier risk
