Energy UK responds to publication of 'no deal' papers
Responding to today’s publication of ‘No Deal’ advice papers by the government, Energy UK’s Head of European Affairs, Marta Krajewska said:
“Energy UK welcomes the publication of the first batch of technical notices providing guidance to citizens and businesses in the UK for preparation for a ‘no-deal’ scenario. While it contains some important clarifications for the nuclear sector, as well as on a number of horizontal issues with impact on our industry, we would expect the second batch to provide more clarity in a number of other areas critical for the energy sector.
“We would also stress that, while it is responsible for Government and business to prepare for all eventualities, a ‘no-deal’ scenario will have significant and negative consequences for the energy industry and would likely create cost pressure that could impact customers’ bills. Energy UK believes that a deal, with a transition period, is by far the best way forward for the energy industry and the UK as a whole.”
