Energy UK comments on Hinkley Point C
Energy UK has today issued a statement following the initial board approval from EDF Energy and then the announcement from the Government of a delay in the decision on Hinkley Point C.
Energy UK said:
“The energy industry needs a consistent policy environment to plan and bring on the full range of generation projects necessary to maintain a reliable and sustainable energy supply. Billions of pounds from within and outside the UK economy are ready to be invested.
“A new government, should assure themselves about the benefits of the deal they are signing up to. We trust government will come to a prompt decision on Hinkley Point C and confirm its approach on generation capacity as a matter of priority.”
