Energy UK welcomes energy's inclusion in EU negotiations
Responding to the Government’s paper setting out the UK’s Approach to negotiations on Future Relationship with the EU, Energy UK’s interim chief executive Audrey Gallacher said:
“In the year that the UK hosts COP26, Energy UK is pleased to see that energy is part of the negotiations on the future trade agreement between the UK and the EU. The Government rightly recognises the importance of the UK energy sector and the need to continue collaboration on energy and climate to tackle climate change and achieve our ambitious decarbonisation targets to reach net zero by 2050.
“Energy UK and its members stand ready to support the Government in achieving a deal that will allow the UK to deploy its low carbon infrastructure at the lowest cost to consumers, enabling further decarbonisation and delivering huge benefits for the UK economy, with new green jobs and a continuing role for the UK as a global leader in technology and innovation.”
