RenewableUK’s Head of Policy and Regulation Rebecca Williams said:
“We welcome Ofgem’s commitment to decarbonisation; the steps set out today are vital to enable the four-fold growth of offshore wind in this decade.
“To get the energy sector on track for net zero, we need to ensure that Ofgem's decisions support rapid decarbonisation and investment in renewables. The next step forward will be for Ofgem to set out how the grid should operate to meet net zero emissions, including the way renewables are charged for access. We look forward to working with Ofgem on this”.
