ABSTRACT
The article reports that British power generators were forced to purchase additional carbon dioxide allowances to keep within the quota required for the second year of the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) of the European Union. The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs said that the carbon emission of the energy industry in 2006 was 8.8 million metric tons. It says that coal-fired power station releases about twice as much carbon dioxide per unit of electricity generated as gas-fired.
