This blog was provided by Hui Meng , University of Hull, whose attendance at the ECR Winter School 2015 was supported by the UKCCSRC. Dr Robin Irons presented on “Important issues for fossil power plants for the 21st Century” at the 2015 UKCCSRC Winter School at the University of Nottingham. He presented that the range of technologies deployed in the market is much broader than ever before, and that these technologies need to be further developed within the trilemma which includes the environment, security of supply, and affordability. Nowadays, the market has significant penetration from nuclear, wind, photovoltaics, coal, gas and biomass energy, and tidal energy and energy storage are also under development. In the UK, 30% of energy will...Read more
