Energy networks comment ahead of Prime Minister's infrastructure speech

The Prime Minister is expected to make a keynote speech in the West Midlands tomorrow (Tuesday) in which he will set out the government’s plans to support the UK economy as the country comes out of lockdown.

Ahead of the Prime Minister’s speech, David Smith, Chief Executive of Energy Networks Association said:

“Jobs, skills and infrastructure are core to the UK’s green recovery. The networks are ready to support this growth with shovel-ready projects across the length and breadth of the country, projects which will themselves provide the backbone to our country’s net zero future. Building ahead of need so that electric vehicles can be rolled out at pace, gas can be greened and industry can be decarbonised, creating the green collar jobs that will keep the UK at the front of the fight against climate change.”
