Energy UK responds to launch of cost of energy review
Following the government's launch of an independent review into the cost of energy led by Professor Dieter Helm, Energy UK chief executive Lawrence Slade commented:
Lawrence Slade, chief executive of Energy UK, said:
"We welcome greater transparency over the cost of energy as we transition to a smarter, more flexible, digital and decarbonised energy system which puts consumers and industry in greater control of their energy.
"We must ensure we deliver an Industrial Strategy based on a low carbon economy and where the billions of investment needed can be delivered competitively via a range of technologies at the lowest cost to consumers. Using our energy as smartly as possible is critical so energy efficiency must be a national infrastructure priority."
