Energy Networks Association responds to reports the UK's planned ban on sales of new petrol, diesel or hybrid cars could start as early as 2032.

David Smith, Chief Executive of Energy Networks Association, which represents electricity and gas network companies in the UK and Ireland, said:

“With a regulatory framework which supports innovation and strategic investment, our energy networks will be ready but this needs to be reflected in Ofgem’s RIIO2 framework urgently.”
