Energy Networks Association responds to the Committee on Climate Change's progress report

Energy Networks Association’s Chief Executive, David Smith says:

“It has been a historic year for the UK after outlining a highly ambitious vision for net zero emissions by 2050 and we must now seize this momentum to deliver the action needed.

"Our energy network companies will be at the heart of this action, building on the work already led by electricity network companies to integrate record levels of low-carbon electricity generation into the system while keeping costs low for the public. Not only have these network companies helped drive the low-carbon transition, but they are working closely with government and the wider industry to ensure the networks remain resilient in the face of climate change.

"Similarly, as we start to tackle some of our greatest challenges including the decarbonisation of industry, heat and transport, ENA’s industry-wide Gas Decarbonisation Pathways Project is outlining a clear vision and actions for the low-cost, low carbon gas networks of the future.”
