Of course, the big news today is last night’s shock election result. It’s currently looking pretty likely that Theresa May will stay on as Prime Minister, propped up by the DUP. How long that will last though is anyone’s guess. As you might expect, the markets are going haywire – and this type of uncertainty can often lead to higher energy prices.
Aside from the election, what else has been hitting the headlines this week?
Wednesday lunchtime marked the first time that power from renewable sources outweighed energy from traditional sources. This was due to a perfect combination of factors: a sunny day that was also very windy, with records being set for wind generation across the continent.
The other big story from the week is the withdrawal of the US from the Paris Climate Agreement. The decision has understandably caused global shockwaves, with some despairing and others clamouring to fill the leadership position that is now available. There are worries within the US that withdrawing from the agreement will cause long-term economic damage, leaving the country at a disadvantage as the clean power movement gains momentum.
On that note, the Guardian covers the recent drop in renewable energy costs – illustrating the growing business case for clean energy. New data shows that in a number of regions, including Mexico and the UAE, renewable energy sources are now cheaper than fossil fuels.
Now we know that we’re in for an – albeit weakened – Conservative government, we have more of an idea about what the energy landscape will look like going forward. The Conservative Price Cap promise aims to protect vulnerable consumers from rip off variable rate tariffs. The policy has been well received by voters, but there are a number of loud detractors who state that the policy will do more harm than good.
