UK: Miliband to give new power projects easier access to electricity grid

Sun Supermarket – The government has announced plans to remove blocks on accessing the electricity transmission network for new power stations – including renewable energy projects. Ed Miliband, secretary of state at the Department for Energy and Climate Change (Decc), has begun consulting on options for changing the way access to the network is managed. He said that proposed new rules would remove blocks for 60MW of generation currently in the queue, and for future projects that will be required to switch the country’s generating capacity to new, low-carbon power sources. via Utility Week>>
