Scientific Alliance Position

We believe that there are many unanswered questions about the main drivers of the world's climate and how to deal with changes to it. We also believe that there are good reasons to promote energy efficiency and to diversify away from our current reliance on coal, oil and gas. Beyond that, we see no easy answers. Open-minded debate of the evidence and policy options is needed, together with encouragement of innovative technical solutions to meet our future energy needs.

Current Issues

Future costs of UK energy supply

The Scientific Alliance recently published part 1 of an examination of National Grid's Future Energy Scenarios, dealing with security of supply. We are now pleased to publish part 2 - cost of supply. The authors - Dr Capell Aris and Colin Gibson - conclude that building more gas and nuclear stations would be considerably less expensive than any of the NG scenarios, as well as offering better energy security.
