The cost of subsidising UK wind farms has dropped to an all-time low By Adam Vaughan Holger Leue/Getty Images The cost of subsidising offshore windfarms has dropped to a record low in the UK.

Carbon-free 2050: five ways the UK energy industry will have to change Reduce reliance on North Sea oil North Sea oil production reached a seven-year high of 1.09 million barrels per day in 2018 and in July 2019, the Oil and Gas Authority opened up applications for exploration projects in 768 blocks and part-blocks across the North Sea, the first licensing round announced since the UK’s commitment to reaching net zero emissions.

Scottish oil and gas fields, including the North Sea regions, are responsible for 96% of the UK’s crude oil and natural gas production between 2017 and 2018, according to the Scottish Government, so new projects such as these will do little to address an imbalanced and environmentally damaging industry.

That compares to £11.8 billion for the same period in the previous year. “A lot of EU buyers seem to have decided that the risks of Brexit are now quite well-understood, and that they don’t present a barrier to making acquisitions if the price is right.” Foreign exchange markets have been betting heavily against sterling since July when Boris Johnson became prime minister. The British pound is expected to fall further if Johnson crashes out of the EU without an agreement.
