ENA responds to UK government's £90 million drive to reduce carbon emissions

The government has today announced households and businesses will benefit from £90 million to cut carbon emissions in industry and homes, including funding for Europe’s first hydrogen plants which could generate enough clean energy to heat over 200,000 homes.

Responding to the news, David Smith, Chief Executive of Energy Networks Association which represents electricity and gas network companies, said:

“This is a win for sustainability and demonstrates that gas, as well as electricity, must be part of the road to achieving net zero emissions by 2050. Gas network companies are already world-leading when it comes to innovating and readying our infrastructure to deliver hydrogen to consumers. We need to build on and develop this expertise further to ensure the UK remains at the forefront.”
