ABSTRACT
The article calls on the need to break through the boundaries for innovation across the utility sector. The author expresses disappointment with the cancellation of two projects attempted to turn biogas produced from treated sewage into a fuel suitable for the gas network. She points out that the proposed Low Carbon Networks Fund (LCNF) should not be the end for the energy sector and that the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem) should reconsider its low-carbon funding streams.
