Energy networks respond to Budget 2020

Energy Networks Association, which represents energy network companies in the UK and Ireland, responds to the Chancellor's first budget.

Responding to Budget 2020, David Smith, Chief Executive of Energy Networks Association said:

“The Chancellor clearly recognises the sheer scale of investment needed to deliver Net Zero by 2050. This Budget will help the UK transition to a much greener future, but it needs to be backed up by bold decisions in the forthcoming government Energy White Paper and the National Infrastructure Strategy. To deliver a Net Zero future, the government needs to support both investment and innovation across the whole energy system. Today’s news is good news, but now is the time to build on that.”
