New Energy World
New Energy World embraces the whole energy industry as it connects and converges to address the decarbonisation challenge. It covers progress being made across the industry, from the dynamics under way to reduce emissions in oil and gas, through improvements to the efficiency of energy conversion and use, to cutting-edge initiatives in renewable and low carbon technologies.
David Whitehouse is Chief Executive of Offshore Energies UK (OEUK), representing companies producing energy from offshore oil, gas and wind in UK waters. He looks forward to a low-carbon future – but says Just Stop Oil’s pathway to net zero would plunge the nation into energy chaos.
This article was written in response to Just Stop Oil’s article, available here.
It’s a shame that the offshore industry operates in places where no one can see its achievements. Because if Just Stop Oil campaigners could only slow march out into the North Sea, they would find something to stop them in their tracks: the world’s biggest wind farm being built by an oil company.
Equinor, the Norwegian state oil company, and its partner SSE Renewables, are installing more than 270 giant wind turbines – collectively capable of powering six million UK homes.
