Energy UK's comment on coal power stations closure
Energy UK has issued a statement on coal power stations closure.
Lawrence Slade, chief executive of Energy UK, said:
“Phasing out coal-fired generation is part of the transition to a low carbon power sector, however we need a long term policy framework to ensure that coal generation can be replaced by a mix of lower carbon alternatives that not only provides affordable, clean supplies but also maintains secure and manageable supplies. We expect the Government to set that framework as a high priority over the coming months”.
