The Committee on Climate Change has published its latest progress report that provides advice to the Government on delivering an economic recovery that accelerates the transition to a cleaner, net-zero emissions economy.

David Smith, Chief Executive of Energy Networks Association said:

“We welcome the Committee on Climate Change’s report. The networks are ready to invest now to create the net zero future we all need. We’ve already set out our plans for the world’s first zero-carbon gas network and we’re preparing for a mass electric vehicle roll-out in support of an earlier ban on petrol and diesel vehicles. The networks are ready to work with the government and Ofgem to fast-track these plans and play our part in the UK’s green recovery.”
