Responding to the Prime Minister’s speech today, Dr Nina Skorupska, chief executive of the Association for Renewable Energy and Clean Growth (REA) said:
“The REA has long advocated that the UK can be powered safely and securely by renewable energy and we welcome this important commitment from the Prime Minister to lead a Green Industrial Revolution.
“This critical step needs to be matched with commitments from Government to support other renewable power technologies and flexibility markets that will unleash further benefits even more directly for people’s homes and businesses.
“We look forward to working with his departments on further exciting opportunities for delivering renewable heat and transport, also vital for meeting our Net Zero commitments.”
