The UK government presented a new energy strategy last week that assigns important roles to nuclear power, offshore wind and hydrogen. A key goal is to produce at least 95% of the UK's electricity from low-carbon sources — including nuclear — by 2030 and reduce dependence on imported fossil fuels, including oil and gas from Russia. The UK will hold a new offshore oil and gas licensing round later this year, with the government arguing that gas produced at home has a lower carbon footprint than imports of pipeline gas or LNG.
