Nick Reeves, Alasdair Beal and Stuart Parkinson outline contrasting positions on the issue of low-carbon energy in the UK. In the first article, Reeves questions whether ministers can be trusted on the environment if they say that nuclear power and coal are a major part of the answer to Britain’s energy needs. In the second, Beal questions whether it will be straightforward to avoid building new coal-fired power stations. In the
third article, Parkinson discusses some recent UK energy modelling studies which demonstrate the possible low carbon, non-nuclear scenarios.
