The article highlights the discussion on the future of gas at the United Nations (UN) climate change convention. Energy Minister Charles Hendry has observed that the trend is leading into widely available and relatively affordable gas, but it may affect investment in gas development internationally. His departmental colleague Greg Barker explained the sudden growth in solar generation and the changes in the feed-in tariff regime. Another issue discussed is the dependence of households on liquid petroleum gas.
