We seem to be heading for an energy crisis this winter as a result of negative NAO conditions. The prediction is that there will be power cuts as fuel for power stations is used to heat homes rather than power industry.
Sam Orton – one of our sales team came across a briefing by Malcolm Pittwood the Energy Manager at FHP ESS who provides interesting comment on the UK fuel crisis three decades ago and how much we use energy today. Malcolm provides some interesting insights and figures such as the fact that within a decade building energy usage has increased by 65%!
On the subject of fuel crisis here is an interesting blog on the UK Treasury’s Tax Policy on fuel.
