The article reports on the criticisms of the energy sector against the British government's latest Carbon Plan. The sector claims that the plan aims too low in terms of the expected contribution from carbon capture and storage (CCS) by 2030. Under the plan, between 40 and 70GW of new low-carbon generation capacity will be required by that date.
