The Future Role of Gas
Delivering and maintaining an energy supply which meets the needs of consumers and business today and tomorrow is what we do day in, day out, making sure we plan around population growth, demographic shifts, reducing carbon and a reliance on fossil fuels.
The current and future direction of energy policy and the shape, size and mix of the energy network in the UK is a hot topic; the role that the gas network can play in both the short and long term must be considered if we are to meet the demands of the energy trilemma – security, affordability and sustainability.
There are clearly some considerable opportunities and challenges in designing the shape of the future energy mix for the UK and there needs to be an increased focus on understanding the affordability of any future energy solution, along with the diversity needed to provide security of supply.
