UK Energy issues
We've heard some worrying things about Energy generation of late with large scale redundancies at German owned Npower.
The company says in statements about upcoming redundancies 'Npower takes its responsibilities to its employees seriously' - I reckon that these would sound like hollow words if you were an employee.
The other energy company story that's hitting the headlines is the Hinkley nuclear generation project headed up by EDF with important Chinese involvement - the guaranteed (by UK Government) price for the energy is already looking high but it seems that this is still giving concern to the EDF number crunchers.
The problems associated with 'Keeping the lights on' are that projects take a long time to deliver (and often overrun) and that the investment sums are enormous - many of us like the idea around projects like the one under discussion in Swansea bay but so far many of these are unproven in terms of large scale generation.
I'm not sure how Mary Beard would feel about this! There's no (subtle) concealment taking place but a statement/intention of some sort is being made,
