The Climate Change Committee has published a progress report in which it outlines its views on progress being made to deliver Net Zero emissions.
David Smith, Chief Executive at Energy Networks Association, which represents the UK’s energy network operators said:
“The energy networks are the foundation on which we’ll build Net Zero. Whether it’s electric vehicles, or heat pumps and hydrogen, the networks are already doing much of the heavy-lifting to deliver a smarter, more flexible energy system in a cost-effective way. Acting on the Climate Change Committee’s recommendations will help turn climate talk into climate action and, backed by regulation that allows strategic investment, we can unlock a more innovative, Net Zero future for customers across the UK.”
