Energy UK statement on the Government's Industrial Strategy

Following the launch of the Government's Industrial Strategy, Energy UK has issued the following statement:

Lawrence Slade, chief executive of Energy UK, said:

“We welcome Government’s Industrial Strategy particularly the focus on battery technology and electric vehicles. However it’s critical the Government acts swiftly to provide the long-term framework necessary to secure investment to build our low carbon future.

“In a post-Brexit economy the UK has a unique opportunity to become a world leader through innovation as we transition to a smarter lower carbon economy. We look forward to working in partnership with the Government to deliver affordable clean energy to consumers.”
