I’ve recently read that the first Fracking wells have been given planning permission over the summer.
With that in mind could you confirm Bulb’s position on Fracking?
I’ve found the ‘Green Gas Gurantee’ in a previous post:
Our “Green Gas Guarantee” is a cast iron commitment that drives all our activity in the energy marketplace, our engagement with gas suppliers and what we think is a priority in terms of future gas usage in the UK:
We will continue to increase the proportion of our gas mix that comes from green sources (we’re currently at 10%) We will work with green gas producers to encourage expansion and increase in output We will invest in the development of new technologies to support green gas</i>
But that doesn’t explicitly exclude Fracked gas.
I also note that the first part of the guarantee says that you will “increase the proportion of our gas mix that comes from green sources”. but it doesn’t seem to have increased in the 2.5 years since that post was written (march 2016). and as far as I can work out you only started in 2015?
So what is the plan for increasing the proportion of Biogas? You’re increasing gas prices by a third so if there’s a time when Biogas is competitive, surely that time is now.
