In response to the Climate Change Committee’s Progress Report 2023, Emma Pinchbeck, CEO at Energy UK, said:
“The UK has the potential to stand at the forefront of the Net Zero race, leading the way on innovation, skills, manufacture, and applications for low-carbon technologies. Government’s welcome, and necessary, ambition in targets must be supported by urgent action to deliver a Net Zero economy.
“The power sector acts as an example of the pace of change that can be delivered under ambitious targets with robust strategies for delivery. If we fail to see focused and comprehensive interventions as recommended by the Climate Change Committee, the UK risks missing out on the significant opportunities for growth, job creation, and export presented by Net Zero.”
