France plans oil and gas production ban by 2040

‘Starting next year, France intends to stop giving permits for oil and gas exploration on the mainland and its overseas territories, according to a draft bill unveiled by the cabinet.

The move aims at ending all oil and gas production by 2040 as France wants to meet its carbon neutral goal as part of a broader plan to combat climate change.

The government is not going to renew current drilling licenses. However, some of the existing permits could be extended because of contracts.

An exemption will be applied to the Guyane Maritime license off French Guiana, in which France’s leading oil company Total has a stake, according to an adviser to Ecology Minister Nicolas Hulot.

The country’s dependence on fossil fuels is very little. Its oil and gas output makes up just one percent of overall national consumption with the rest imported.’

UK to end 140 years of coal power by 2025
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2018/01/05/uk-end-140-years-coal-power-2025/




'Britain will end its use of coal in power plants by 2025 after more than 140 years burning the fossil fuel.

The Government confirmed that its 2015 pledge to phase out coal-fired power within a decade would move ahead under a new rule that limits the ‘carbon-intensity’ of power plants.

The limit will allow thermal power plants that use lower-carbon gas to act as back-up generation, but coal plants will be forced to close unless they are fitted with carbon capture technology.

Coal-fired power has dwindled in recent years due to the rising tax on carbon emissions to curb greenhouse gases and the boom in renewable energy.

In 2017 coal-fired power made up just 2pc of the UK’s electricity mix, down from 9pc in 2016 and 22pc in 2015. Meanwhile, low-carbon options such as renewable energy and nuclear power make up more than half of the electricity system.

Last year was also the first time Britain used no coal-fired power at all over a 24-hour period, according to National Grid data.'
