  • Nearly 40 percent of the country’s electricity still comes from fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas — the latter makes up the largest share (36 percent) of the UK’s total energy mix and offers a lower-carbon option to displace coal.
  • Sir Ian Wood was born into a fishing family; his father had a small ship-repairing business and it still owns the largest fish processing plant in the area.
  • Depleted oil and gas fields will be used for what is called carbon capture and storage (CCS) — removing carbon dioxide produced by oil and gas production and by industry, and storing it in empty reservoirs for later use.
