I am one of those believers that feels that fossil fuels do have a role to play although it needs to take on a lesser role in society as we progress from energy that is purely based on fossil fuels to now having more influx of renewable energy.
We have to remember that one of the three pillars of the EU energy law and policy over the last 20 years has been not only developing green energy but also developing security of supply and ensuring that we can have as many different energy sources as possible’
