Energy UK response to infrastructure announcements
Power at the heart of the economic recovery
Today's infrastructure announcements give the green light to investment in renewables of offshore wind plus the creation of the new energy capacity to ensure the lights stay on. Energy UK's Chief Executive Angela Knight said today.
"Energy companies are investing billions in Britain. Today's government infrastructure announcement puts power at the heart of the economic recovery. It is essential to bring on the new investment in nuclear, renewables, biomass and the gas power stations necessary to give us security. This investment will create many new jobs as well as building new, cleaner power stations. It is about investing in a greener, cleaner future for generations to come.
"Energy UK has been stressing the importance of creating the right conditions for long-term investment in building and running the UK's energy infrastructure. Work is well underway with government to make these major projects a reality. And at street level, with individuals to make sure they get both the best deal on their energy and all the help they need to make their homes snug and efficient."
