The voice of the energy industry

Energy UK comments on Queen's Speech

Commenting on the Queen's Speech of 11 May 2021, Emma Pinchbeck, Energy UK's chief executive said:

“Today’s Queen’s Speech is a step in the right direction towards readying the country for its net zero ambitions, however over the next 12 months the focus needs to be on policy development to support the energy industry to go further and faster to deliver the UK’s 2050 net zero target.  

“The Government’s focus on skills, infrastructure and environmental protections will be important for developing a sustainable long-term sector for the future, and to support a just transition.

“The swathe of strategies, reports and consultations due out in the coming months gives the industry and the government the opportunity to shape the future legislative and policy framework to support the next decade of delivery and investment towards decarbonisation.”
