The Liberal Democrats have voted in favour of decarbonising the UK power sector.
An emissions target of 50-100 grams of carbon dioxide per kilowatt hour (KWh) for any fossil fuel plant built after 2030 was approved by delegates during the Autumn Conference in Brighton.
The vote will call for more action from the UK government as the plans were not included in the draft Energy Bill earlier this year.
The vote also opposes Chancellor George Osborne’s call for the prioritisation of gas in Britain. Mr Osborne has made clear his preference for gas over renewable generation.
