Proposed new UK oil and gas fields would provide at most three weeks of energy a year
Experts and former ministers have also said the developments would not reduce energy prices in the UK
Global prices would fall by some amount. Therefore UK prices would too. That’s just obvious.
The more important point here thought is, well, given winter clod spells and windlessness in them, isn’t three weeks a year about what we need battery power to cover?
And natural gas would be markedly cheaper than trying to build 3 week’s worth of actual batteries…..
