According to a recent report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), over 80pc of the world’s energy supply is dominated by fossil fuels, which have led to a consortium of over 200 governments drawing up dramatic plans to cut global warming. The report also highlights that clean energy will have to treble in output and dominate world energy supplies by 2050 in order to avoid catastrophic climate change.

The level of expectation has been so high all season if it dips, will Middlesbrough be able to pick themselves up?
Chris: The play offs are always nasty, whichever team gets into the play offs will have a tough task. It’s almost as if the third placed team will be the underdogs because they will be on a mental low. Particularly for Boro, it could be a case of ‘here we go again’. We’ve never been particularly successful at Wembley. Cardiff yes, but not wembley.

Energy conservation has become essential over the last 30 years, which has created the need for environmental responsibility as well as a change in traditional business practices.
Energy prices have skyrocketed over the past 10 years due to underlying factors such as fuel depletion and global environmental concerns. This has created a knock-on effect of governments creating energy regulations in an effort to force companies into “going green” and being eco-savvy.
