The UK is currently facing a decline in the North Sea gas output. This could mean that British homes and businesses start to become dependent on foreign gas imports which will be much more expensive.

The Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit has said that significant investment in clean energy, as well as sustainable infrastructure, is needed for households and businesses to save money on gas bills.

Currently, the government’s policies when it comes to sustainability and energy security, could lead to import dependency which could rise to us relying on 85% imports by 2035.

By 2035 the gas output from the North Sea is expected to fall by 75%. This means more imports are going to have to be relied on from foreign countries.  This could lead to energy security in the UK suffering, causing energy prices to rise.

Many are calling on the government to speed up UK renewables deployment and increase sustainable changes to save homes and businesses money on energy bills. This could include getting rid of gas boilers and replacing them with more efficient heat pumps and increasing insulation.

The UK currently imports around 50% of its gas from offering suppliers, this is expected to rise to 85% by 2035 unless new measures are put in place.
