Ofgem, the wonderfully Orwellian acronym for the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets, the state regulator of the gas and electricity industry in Great Britain has warned the British people that there may be blackouts in 2015 unless business reduces their need for energy. But the real reason, says the Daily Mail report is EU climate edicts:
Diktats from EU are forcing closure of old coal-fired power stations
They push out carbon dioxide which is blamed for climate change
Energy regulator Ofgem said the country faced an ‘unprecedented challenge’ as coal-fired plants are closed by European Union diktats on the environment.
And the result of this unproven science (remember climate change propaganda is to accomplish a political goal: World government) is that people in the UK will be forced to ration energy.
To prevent an energy crisis, Ofgem yesterday announced new powers for National Grid, which could come into effect before the end of this year.
Under the most radical measure, businesses that sign up to a deal with National Grid will be told to shut down between 4pm and 8pm on cold evenings.
Officials claim the closures would not unduly inconvenience factories and firms, as they could open on Saturday mornings to catch up on lost work.
