This press release is from 2010 - Sewage works to provide gas for 200 homes in Oxfordshire - sounds optimistic - enough to be uplifting.
Yet if you go to page 33 of the Government report Energy in Brief, you will see that 2011 was its peak year - what happened to a damn good idea? No money in it for big corporations?
I reckon Shale Gas is much more profitable. There must be tons more money in fracking than from the 7 plus (and counting) billion humans.....
Cheer yourself up by playing on Worldometers - I did!
