Energy UK's statement on Paris climate deal

Following the global agreement on climate change reached in Paris, Energy UK has issued a statement.

Lawrence Slade, chief executive of Energy UK, said:

“The new global agreement on climate change that was announced in Paris is a historic milestone. The UK energy industry will continue to play its part in reducing carbon emissions and meeting climate change targets.

“Government and industry must now work together to create the right conditions to drive investment in low-carbon technologies and create a dynamic sector with the right mix of generation which will not only achieve our climate commitments but will also create jobs across the country.  It is also vital to secure UK’s energy supply while ensuring energy remains affordable for everyone.”
