Energy UK responds to government's third batch of "no-deal" scenario technical notices
Responding to the government’s third batch of “no-deal” scenario technical notices, Energy UK’s chief executive, Lawrence Slade said:
“We are disappointed that still nothing has been published on electricity and gas trading or EU ETS, as these are crucial topics that need to be addressed.
“With only 6 months until the UK’s departure from the EU, the clarity on the issues mentioned above is needed as a matter of urgency. Once again we would like to highlight that a “no-deal” scenario will have significant and negative consequences for the energy industry and would likely create increased risk and cost pressure that could impact customers’ bills. We strongly believe that a deal, with a transition period, remains the best way forward for energy customers, the sector and the UK as a whole.”
