Energy UK comment on the Scottish Government's draft Energy Strategy
Following the publication of the Scottish Government's draft Energy Strategy, Energy UK issued the following statement.
Lawrence Slade, chief executive of Energy UK, said:
“We welcome the release of the Scottish Government’s Energy Strategy which rightly identifies the urgent need for a plan to decarbonise our heat and transport sectors and the impact that this will have on future power demand.
“Scotland has been a world leader in reducing its emissions and continues to set the pace with an ambitious new Climate Change Bill expected later this year.
“I look forward to meeting with the Scottish Government this week to discuss the potential for the UK to become a hub for low carbon technologies which can offer growth in other sectors through a strong supply chain and the potential for international exports creating thousands of jobs up and down the country.”
