Energy UK comments on the General Election result
Commenting on the General Election result, Energy UK Director of Policy, Audrey Gallacher said:
“While Brexit will continue to dominate the political agenda - and there will be important issues to now focus on as we look to the future relationship with Europe - we must also quickly break the hiatus in energy policy, therefore it is welcome to hear the continued commitment from the Prime Minister to delivering net-zero emissions by 2050.
“The energy sector is committed to working in partnership with Government and other industries so we can go further and faster in the decarbonisation of our economy. With just 120 quarters until 2050, there is no time to waste so we look forward to seeing clear policy direction from the government which will allow the investment and innovation to follow.“
