Energy UK comments on fifth carbon budget
In response to the government agreeing the fifth carbon budget, Energy UK said:
"This is an important step from government in providing long term certainty for the energy sector. The Committee on Climate Change provides a clear path for decarbonisation of the energy sector. The industry will continue to work with government to provide a low carbon supply of electricity at the lowest cost to customers.
"However, there are questions that still need to be answered from government on how we achieve these targets. It is vital there is a stable and long term policy framework in place that delivers the investment needed."
