The biofuels centre plan will be abandoned AFTER the 'enabling' housing developments have taken place, at which point College will announce their 'great disappointment' at 'unforeseen' obstacles (i.e. their purse will stay heavier if they don't bother), but that they will still be investing the big fat housing profits in other energy-related projects (i.e. glass-cladding Skempton, which happens to contain an Energy Futures Lab).
Net result: one AONB destroyed, turning beautiful countryside into soulless housing estates; all AONBs the left open for the same thing to happen elsewhere; and a few ugly concrete tower-blocks in London covered in glass, but still ugly anyway.
You forgot to mention that by cladding old concrete buildings in glass, the energy consumption will rise because, err, you just built a greenhouse in the summer sun. no wonder we have power cuts in summer and not winter.... Talk about wasting energy at the pumps. I'd be surprised if the total amount BP want to invest is more than the annual energy bill of Oxbridge and Imperial put together. Greenwash, the whole fugging lot.
