UK could become net power exporter by 2020s: National Grid
National Grid published its forecasts for the UK's energy landscape out to 2030 on Thursday 28 September. The Future Energy Scenarios report said increasing renewables output and the construction of new interconnectors mean the UK could become a net exporter of electricity by the early 2020s. National Grid said a scenario in which the UK meets its 2020 target for renewables generation could include 30GW of wind power and 5GW of biomass capacity, including 1GW of biomass conversions. The "Gone Green" scenario, which envisages the UK meeting all of its environmental targets, would also depend on 6GW of gas-fired plants closing by 2020, with around 20GW of new generation being constructed in the period between 2015 and the mid-2020s.
