Energy UK response to Public Accounts Committee report on infrastructure investment

In response to the Public Accounts Committee’s report on infrastructure investment, Angela Knight, Chief Executive of Energy UK said:

“Building new, low carbon electricity generation, securing the backup needed and renewing the distribution system is a major part of the next 20 years infrastructure spending in this country.  Investment creates jobs, improves the quality of the environment and gives security for this essential service. As the report points out, investment has to be paid for and the costs impact on energy bills.  We believe that an independent assessment of the costs needs to be properly undertaken as part of a clear and transparent debate so the consumer is properly informed.”
