The government has published its Energy Security Strategy setting out how Great Britain will increase the use of diverse sources of homegrown energy for greater energy security in the long-term

Alongside ambitions for increased use of wind, solar and hydrogen, the strategy will see a significant increase in nuclear reactors, with an ambition for around 25% of the country’s projected electricity demand to be met by nuclear power by 2050.

Other plans include:

  • Cutting the approval time for new offshore wind farms and consulting with communities that wish to host new onshore wind infrastructure in return for guaranteed lower energy bills;
  • Licensing new north sea oil and gas projects to launch this autumn;
  • Launching a Heat Pump Investment Accelerator Competition to make British heat pumps, reducing demand for gas;
  • Consulting on rules for solar projects to increase the UK’s capacity, and
  • Increasing low carbon hydrogen production capacity by 2030, with at least half coming from green hydrogen.
