Energy UK comments on Government's bid for Glasgow to host COP26
Commenting on the Government's bid for Glasgow to host COP26, Energy UK's chief executive, Lawrence Slade said:
“Scotland, and the wider UK, is world-leading in the deployment of low carbon and zero carbon technologies, with the first wind turbine built in Scotland by Professor James Blyth in 1887 so hosting COP26 in Glasgow is a great opportunity for the UK to showcase its progress and plans for making a zero-carbon economy a reality.
“The UK energy industry strongly supports the Government’s bid to host COP26 and Energy UK’s members are taking the lead in decarbonising the UK economy – by leading on low carbon generation and investment in technology and innovation. We look forward to working in partnership with the Government to deliver our shared ambition of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050.”
