The UK Energy White Paper has been released. This is a follow up to Boris Johnson's 10 point plan.

It sets an ambitious strategy but does it go far enough? The UK is spending in the order of £10B in decarbonisation and energy transition yet in the budget earlier this year the twice that was budgeted for roads.

Thanks for sharing, John. These types of plans are always interesting, but the first question that comes to mind: will they stick? Who would be held accountable, and how, if reality falls short of goals? And if those consequences aren't there, does this amount to more of a wishlist than a strategy? 

Thanks again!

Thanks for sharing this John.

There needs to be a yearly follow-up report that updates us on progress, highlighting successes and areas where we need to be doing better.

Well said, Mo-- show the success in meeting the goals, or analyze why they're falling short, but either way make sure we're walking the walk, not just talking the talk
