ABSTRACT
This section offers news briefs concerning public utilities. A report commissioned for National Grid stated that renewable gas is capable of contributing to the renewable energy and carbon reduction targets for 2020 in Great Britain. The European Council on Foreign Relations mentioned that there is not enough reason to be concerned over European dependency on Russian gas. Figures for 2007 compiled by the British government indicate that emissions of the basket of six greenhouse gases covered by the Kyoto Protocol were lower by 1.7 percent.
