CEO of Drax Power, Andy Koss, has commented on a recent report titled ‘Coal comeback pushes up UK’s carbon emissions’, authored by Dr Iain Staffell, a lecturer at Imperial College London:
“The carbon price has been the driving force behind Britain’s decarbonisation. This analysis shows that even with the carbon price, market conditions can be such that coal power can have a resurgence. The UK is getting closer to removing coal from the power system by 2025, but we’re not there yet.
“Even now, with so much coal already removed from the system, emissions from power generation would rise significantly without a strong carbon price, making it very difficult to deliver the clean growth required to meet our climate targets.”
