Energy UK responds to the Committee on Climate Change Progress Report
Responding to the Progress Report from the Committee on Climate Change, Lawrence Slade, chief executive of Energy UK, said:
“Today’s progress report from the Committee on Climate Change recognises the significant contribution of the power sector in driving decarbonisation, and underlines the urgent need for further action - and the energy sector is ready to lead further progress which will deliver benefits for the environment, the economy and customers.
“Net-zero can be achieved but only if the ambition is supported by the right policies. As our recent Future of Energy report highlighted, we need to go further and faster in areas like decarbonising transport and heating and improving the energy efficiency of our homes and businesses. This can only happen with consistent and bold policy-making from across all government departments to support the target and we look forward to working with the Government to achieve our shared ambition.”
