    That's just 12 years time! We are being left behind as the world moves forward.
    The demand for power from the grid will keep diminishing which will force higher prices to keep it viable.
    At the same time alternative energy supplies and storage are rapidly being deployed with their price falling all the time.

    We need to cut our losses and change to limit the huge amount of money that will end being wasted resisting a changing world.

    "The Climate Change Committee in the UK has already recommended it be done by 2027. Given that even the coal industry doesn’t believe in the nonsense of carbon capture and storage – they complained loudly that it was “impossible” when President Obama legislated for “clean coal” in the US, then phasing out of unabated coal pretty much means the phasing out of coal generation altogether."
