The article attempts to explain the importance of expanding gas network companies in Great Britain as of 2010. It notes that gas network expansion has been a key part of energy policy for several years. Also cited are the efforts of these firms to produce inventive financing options to extend their networks and reach more customers. Arguments to be made for this move are mentioned, one of which is the likelihood that the network could be used for renewable energy sources in the form of biogas.
