We have inveighed against the energy-market subsidy-wallahs many a time and oft; but it isn't just the wind farmers, dung burners and CCS merchants, who know no better. Nor is it confined to hints and briefings by the big players (GDF most recently; and EDF & Centrica passim ad nauseam).
This form of behaviour is becoming institutionalised to the point where proper companies are rattling the begging-bowl in banner headlines alongside their logos at the top of their web-pages. I give you Drax, owners of Europe's largest (and 'cleanest' !) coal-fired power station.
"Given an appropriate level of regulatory support". Ah yes, 'support'. And they do mean given ! They have no shame.
Away with them all.
