Responding to the reports, Paul McGimpsey, Director of Markets & Regulation at Energy Networks Association which represents the UK and Ireland’s energy networks businesses said:

“Having access to diverse sources of electricity and gas helps the UK to have a resilient energy system. While we continue to drive action on Net Zero our priority remains to keep energy flowing this winter.”
