Dash for gas could save UK £700bn say ENA

Heavier reliance on gas and less dependence on renewables, coal and nuclear
could save Britain £700bn over the next 50 years, according to the Energy
Networks Association.
New research found that if gas can be "cleaned" by capturing its carbon
dioxide emissions and pumping them underground, it would be a much cheaper
option. The industry group, which represents Britain's transmission companies, said
gas requires less new power generation capacity and infrastructure than
other sources of energy. Billions of pounds will need to be spent on making the UK's networks fit for
nuclear power and more renewable energy.
