The article reports on the concern over the emergence of government initiatives on taxation and carbon reduction across energy-intensive industries in Great Britain. It notes that several process industries have warned the government particularly on the uneconomical effect of the carbon price floor policy. Also concerned is the requirement by the Carbon Budget that obligates Great Britain in cutting emissions, which would require more investments in wind, wave, and solar power.
