Energy UK comments on greenhouse gas emissions national statistics

Commenting on the UK greenhouse gas emissions national statistics:1990-2017 published by BEIS today, Energy UK’s chief executive, Lawrence Slade said:

“These figures highlight how the UK power sector continues to lead the way in cutting emissions and decarbonising our economy – with around half of the overall reduction in UK emissions since 1990 from the energy supply sector. 

“Over half of the UK's electricity is now generated by low-carbon sources – with green jobs and economic growth created in the transition to a cleaner energy system. However we must go further and faster if we are to meet our climate change targets and – as these figures underline – we must see greater progress in other sectors including heat and transport.”
