Electric power generation is changing globally driven by carbon reduction targets to safe-guard the environment and the need for security of supply at affordable prices. For the UK this has led to the retirement of most of our coal-fired power plants and the exponential growth in wind power seen in recent years. This lecture will provide an overview of the conventional and renewable generating technologies that are currently contributing to supplying the UK National Grid, how this mix is expected to change over the next decade and the challenges that need to be overcome in order to deliver this.
