Britain’s Emissions Dropped By Switching From Coal To Natural Gas

ChemInfo reported: Britain’s emissions dropped by six per cent in 2016 by switching from coal to natural gas a new study from the University of Sheffield has revealed. The collaborative study by Dr Grant Wilson from the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering and Energy 2050 at the University of Sheffield and Dr Iain Staffell from the Centre for Environmental Policy at Imperial College London, highlights the scale and speed of emissions reduction in Britain as a result of fuel switching from coal to natural gas through effective carbon pricing. The switch analyzed in the study was made possible by incentivizing gas over coal through effective carbon pricing. A carbon price of £18 per ton in 2016 was needed to incentivize the fuel switch. The research found that if spare capacity already existed, then switching from coal to gas will be a quick win method of reducing emissions as it does not require several years to build the generation to impact reductions in emissions, unlike other options such as renewable and nuclear energy.
