Commenting on the publication today of the National Infrastructure Commission’s report “Strategic Investment and Public Confidence”, RenewableUK’s Head of Policy and Regulation, Rebecca Williams, said:

 

“It’s great to see that the National Infrastructure Commission has been listening to industry, and is now advocating sweeping reforms.

 

“Ofgem is not currently delivering on what is needed to meet our climate change goals, so we welcome the recommendation that it should have new duties to promote the UK’s legally-binding net zero emissions target.

 

“This will help to ensure that the renewable energy sector can attract the investment needed to build a low-carbon energy system as swiftly and as cheaply as possible for consumers”.
