The Prime Minister has announced a new target to cut the UK’s emissions by at least 68% by 2030.
David Smith, Chief Executive at Energy Networks Association which represents the UK and Ireland’s energy networks businesses said:
“The new climate target must be backed up with climate action which is why the Prime Minister’s recent 10 Point Plan is so important. We look forward to the Energy White Paper which should set out the policy needed to accelerate the roll-out of electric vehicles, increase the amount of renewables on the grid, and develop a hydrogen economy. This will help to support skilled, green jobs and cut the country's emissions at best value and least disruption to the public.”
