REA statement in response to the Climate Change Committee’s 2022 Progress Report to Parliament: The CCC’s annual assessment of UK progress in reducing emissions:

Dr Nina Skorupska CBE, Chief Executive of the Association for Renewable Energy and Clean Technology (REA), said:

“The latest CCC report is direct in its assessments and we at the REA echo them. There remains large gaps in energy efficiency policy and, while there has been good progress on the decarbonisation of power, it is clear that much more needs to be done on land use, heat and transport too.

“We do acknowledge the Government’s high level targets, and welcome their continued commitment to the energy transition and Net Zero.

“However, in short, we agree with the CCC – the Government’s current strategies will not deliver Net Zero. The targets are there, but the Government now has to get on with delivery.”
