Commenting on the outcome of the general election, RenewableUK’s CEO Hugh McNeal said:
“We look forward to working with the new Government to grow the UK’s renewable energy sector and deliver on the commitments to 40GW of offshore wind by 2030 and developing floating wind projects. Rapid expansion of renewables, including low cost onshore wind and innovative tidal energy, is key to decarbonising our economy and will provide huge benefits for consumers and businesses across the UK.
The voters have sent a clear signal that climate action must be a top priority, and the eyes of the world will be on the UK this year as we host the UN global climate summit, so this Government must take urgent action to get the UK on track for net zero”.
