The momentum behind the shale gas revolution is beginning to look almost inexorable. The Institute of Directors has now come out with a report backing the large-scale exploitation of this resource:
A new report from the Institute of Directors (IoD) reveals the huge potential of Britain’s shale gas reserves, calculating the job creation, decarbonisation and economic benefits of exploiting the shale gas on our doorstep.
Britain’s Shale Gas Potential, the latest report in the IoD’s Infrastructure for Business series, explores the extent of UK shale gas, the practical and policy implications of fracking and the lessons that can be learned from the US’s experience opening up their reserves. New polling of IoD members shows that British business leaders support developing a UK shale gas industry.
Is it now only Ed Davey and the environmentalist staff at DECC who stand in the way of wholesale change?
