In response to the Prime Minister’s 10 Point Plan, Emma Pinchbeck, Energy UK’s chief executive said:
“We can only reach the Net Zero target with efforts on all fronts, so we welcome the Prime Minister’s commitment in the 10 Point Plan today. The energy industry will power delivery on most of the Prime Minister’s bold targets, like those for electric vehicles, heat pumps, and energy efficiency – and on the investment in technologies, like hydrogen, nuclear and wind. Businesses see the massive potential for showing global leadership on the green economy as we also host the UN climate change negotiations in 2021 and rebuild after the pandemic.
“The energy industry has led the way in reducing the UK’s emissions and we stand ready to play a central role in this Green Industrial Revolution. As the Prime Minister has said: this isn’t just about conservation, but creating 250,000 jobs: ambitious policies will bring investment, employment, and lasting benefits to all parts of the country, to communities and to the environment.”
