Energy futures: two views on the next generation. Mike Coulten and Veronica Smart. Energy World. January 2005 P. 14-15
Balancing energy generation, economics and the environment is a highly complex business, particularly with climate change at the top of the Government agenda. It requires the assessment of the trade-offs between the economically rational choice of electricity generation versus the environmentally friendly option - and then the development of a realistic strategy. Here, Business Development Manager Mike Coulten and Market Analyst Veronica Smart, both with the Energy Information Centre, debate the issues, one supporting renewables; the other more use of gas.
