Energy security and transition plans are progessing in the UK against the backdrop of a Conservative party leadership contest and rising political pressures to act. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to be replaced in early September by either ex-Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak or Foreign Minister Liz Truss. The last week has seen a number of low-carbon policy developments — including a hydrogen funding road show, planning permission for a new nuclear power station and some 8 gigawatts of offshore wind capacity. All of these moves are designed to both advance the energy transition — especially in the face of wildfires and record heat — while reinforcing energy security in light of the Ukraine crisis.
