Energy UK comments on Queen's Speech
Commenting on today’s Queen’s Speech, Energy UK interim chief executive, Audrey Gallacher said:
“We welcome further commitment from the Government today in the Queen’s Speech to delivering net-zero, as well as steps to protect and enhance environmental protections including action on air quality, and we look forward to working in partnership with the Government to go further and faster to decarbonise our economy.
“It is critical we take action now and avoid further delay so we urge the Government to bring forward the energy White Paper as soon as possible to set out the clear policy framework that will allow the necessary investment and innovation to follow. This, along with a consistent and concerted effort across all Government departments, will allow us to go further and faster in decarbonising our economy.
“The energy industry looks forward to working in partnership with Government, and other sectors and stakeholders, to deliver our shared ambition of delivering a net-zero economy but we must start urgently. There is no time to waste.”
