The voice of the energy industry

Energy UK comments on Committee on Climate Change report

Angela Knight CBE, Chief Executive of Energy UK, comments on the Committee on Climate Change report, Reducing the UK's carbon footprint and managing competiveness risks:

"Government policies already account for 9% of a typical household energy bill. As any additional costs are considered, affordability for households and competitiveness for industry must be a priority. 

In its energy policy, along with affordability and security, the UK Government has made a strong commitment to decarbonisation, and this report shows some of the challenges this country faces, especially if other countries do not choose to follow a similar path."
