Energy UK responds to latest Energy Trends from BEIS
Commenting on BEIS’s latest Energy Trends publication, Energy UK’s chief executive Lawrence Slade said:
“The energy sector has made huge advances in decarbonising with renewable generation at a record high and coal at a record low for the quarter; these latest figures from Government show how the UK’s energy mix is changing and the significant role low carbon generation now plays.
“Maintaining investment in the sector with a long-term stable policy environment, is critical to fulfil our climate change ambition and decarbonise, a process which will not only create jobs and benefit the economy but also the environment.
“However, to do this at the lowest cost to consumers we must ensure that we are no longer excluding the lowest cost technologies from our energy mix.”
