Call for national strategy to cut demand for electricity

Political parties in Scotland should commit to a national strategy to help businesses and consumers reduce and manage their demand for electricity, environmental and energy groups have said. WWF Scotland and Edinburgh-based company Flexitricity have stressed that implementing a concerted strategy regarding electricity consumption would mean Scotland could avoid the need to build expensive new fossil fuel power stations and more rapidly cut climate emissions. The groups also asserted that such a strategy must go beyond energy efficiency, and include measures to increasingly tap into the vast existing “invisible“ power network of industrial, commercial and public sector organisations.

Power station to close after half century of electricity production

A power station is to stop generating electricity and will close after 46 years. E.ON said the Ironbridge Power Station in Shropshire will reach its 20,000 hours limit of generation under an EU directive aimed at lowering emissions of certain pollutants. Former employee Mike Smith has been invited back to press the button to end generation on Friday and mark the closure of the plant, which used to be powered by coal but was converted to biomass in 2012.

Carbon content of electricity generation falls to record low in Ireland

The carbon content of electricity generation in Ireland fell to a record low last year, according to new figures by the (SEAI) Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland. Renewable electricity help the country avoid 2.6million tonnes of CO2 emissions in 2014 and is now one of the single biggest contributors to carbon dioxide emissions reduction in Ireland. The body said without renewables, power generation emissions would have been around 23% higher.

Icelandic volcanoes could provide power to British homes

Icelandic volcanoes could be providing power to British homes, under plans to be announced by David Cameron. The Prime Minister, attending the Northern Future Forum in Reykjavik, is expected to say that the UK and Iceland are to look at establishing an electricity pipeline between the two countries. The multi-billion pound “interconnector” - involving 750 miles of undersea cabling - would enable the direct export of hydro and geothermal-generated electricity to be exported directly to Britain.
