Energy UK feeds into EU exit talks
Following a roundtable discussion with the Department for Exiting the European Union (DExEU) and energy leaders, Energy UK and DExEU issued the following joint statement.
Energy UK's Lawrence Slade, Secretary of State for Exiting the EU, David Davis and Minister of State for Energy and Intellectual Property, Baroness Neville Rolfe said:
“Britain’s energy sector has made great strides over the past decade. We are world leaders in areas like tackling climate change, renewables investment and oil and gas innovation. “Government and industry will work in partnership to identify and address the challenges and seize the new opportunities that arise from Brexit, meet our carbon targets and deliver an energy market that works for all.
“This will be an important part of Britain's negotiation to leave the European Union. We are determined to work together, ensuring Britain's supply of secure, affordable and clean energy is maintained."
