Jim Lightfoot, MD of generation at E-On UK kicked of today’s business breakfast by setting out his company’s plans and ambitions in UK power generation. For him, we need a balance of coal, gas, nuclear and renewables if we are to meet the UK’s power generation needs in the coming years. Each has its place and E-On is keen to be involved in all, including nuclear and carbon capture technology. I found it a cogent and common sense line. Will be interesting to hear how thing go in the Nuclear vs Renewable vs Carbon Capture debate at 12.15 though!
