Has the Spending Review delivered a coherent approach to energy innovation? – Jim Watson writes for UKERC

In his new blog for UKERC, Jim Watson reacts to the energy policy implications of the UK Government Spending Review. One of the prominent themes of the review is the need for innovation in energy technologies and systems, which has also been highlighted in the long-awaited energy policy speech by Amber Rudd. The blog assesses UK energy policy, including the new development that the UK’s CCS commercialisation programme is being cancelled, in light of these statements.
