Thats true, unless you took advantage of the feed in tariffs on offer. In which case you would sitting pretty now. Some people will be getting approx 60p per kwh now (for domestic solar pv). What is about about government which makes them incapable of managing money properly?

Get off our pies mate. You can get some damn good pies in Australia. In fact, the best pies in the world are made in Australia. Nothing like a good tomato & onion meat pie and tomato sauce. Or steak & kidney or pepper steak pie. Hmmm I'm making myself homesick.

your pies are utter shite
had them from a Coles, at someones house, that restaurant in Sydney that is famous for them (completely forget the name) as well as one in a restaurant in Brisbane (best one by far, which wasn't saying a lot).

and a proper pie shouldn't need any fecking ketchup ! gravy should be it.

had a big row with some aussie posters about a decade about it all. Overcooked roasts were another bugbear, and with ketchup too.
Fish & chips is amazing there though, better than UK by some way :thumbup:

The best pies on earth are Original Clark’s Pies. That’s not only a fücking fact it’s scripture, law, creed, folklore, legend, truth and enlightenment. I’m sure some of you will disagree in your childish and untraveled ineptitude, but I don’t need to answer, I’ll just preemptively issue a stern and sympathetic “fück off you stupid cünt” and leave it there.

Interesting contrary view here from government-funded research group Energy Systems Catapult [well, contrary to mine]:

"Achieving net zero significantly earlier than 2050 in our modelling exceeds even our most speculative measures, with rates of change for power, heat and road transport that push against the bounds of plausibility." Fair enough.

They calculate that the UK can cut emissions fast enough to be climate neutral by 2050 at a cost of 1-2% of GDP – but only "if ministers act much more quickly." They say the government urgently needs to invest in three key technologies: carbon capture and storage with bioenergy crops; hydrogen for a wide variety of uses; and advanced nuclear power. Interesting. They're out of step with the energy sector there. No one else is looking seriously at carbon capture and storage with bioenergy crops, except from waste, or advanced nuclear power. Everyone's getting interested in hydrogen.

"The energy digitalisation sector alone will be worth £45 billion by 2025 and over £20 billion will need to be invested in electricity networks over the 15 years to upgrade infrastructure to meet the changing energy system." zzzz will hate that.

I didn't say it got on my pie, just aghast that my aussie mates add ketchup to food that isn't chips without even tasting it first, including pies. at least once the pie was served with ketchup and my glance of :uhoh: was all that prevented it being put on my pie without me asking.

weird country, weird pies.

Still, I for one welcome the chance to have another 20 billion of overhead cost passed through to my reatil price.

That's my judgement. We're headed towards a period of much cheaper electricity. Unless government screws the pooch. It's hard to see how cheaper electricity doesn't result in cheaper prices, numbers being ordered like they are, in numerical sequence. If the fuel costs less, and construction costs are lower, and there's an open market for capacity, then what pray tell will cause prices to rise? Profiteering, I suppose. Protectionism. Simple wrong choices. But the tech will deliver electricity cheaper, and you can bet on that.

Of course you have to pay for the infrastructure. You have to pay for the infrastructure, whether it's wind, coal or gas. You can't not build new plant as old plant wears out. The only alternative is no electricity.

I like this idea. Surely we can build modular nuclear plants cheaply, the technology isn't exactly new now.

It is. Government has a choice. They can either replace grid infrastructure now, or they can replace it as it reaches the end of its operational life.

You're saying [with no justification] they'll replace it before replacement is needed. Why would they do that? The answer is they won't.

You have fifty years. Over that period almost every grid connected power plant will reach the end of its operational life, and will need to be replaced. In almost every case they can be replaced with a renewable alternative at lower cost than a like replacement.

The cases where they can't be replaced at a lower cost is where government chooses an alternative option for energy security reasons.
