100km of cable a day

Posted on

As The Guardian notes this morning:

From next year, engineers will need to roll out more than 100km (62 miles) of electric cabling every day until 2040 if the government hopes to power the UK towards its climate goals, according to new data.

Analysis of Britain's existing power grids and the country's predicted electricity demand reveals that within the next 17 years, more than 600,000km of electric lines will need to be either added or upgraded across the UK.

But, somehow, you just know that the government will prioritise tax cuts instead, don't you?

Or that they will simply say that the fiscal rules will not allow it.

One day, we are going to deeply regret our inaction.
