The future change that happened yesterday and what (some of) it means
The 2003 White Paper heralded a revolution for energy. In place of gas and coal there were to be renewable generators.
It is now clear that what government meant by ‘renewable power’ was big renewable power. A bit of that happened with off-shore wind farms, but almost all renewable generators built since that time have been small, have been connected to the distribution network - and they have changed the shape of the energy market.
