RenewableUK is welcoming the National Infrastructure Commission’s Net Zero report which was published today.
RenewableUK's Director of Future Electricity Systems Barnaby Wharton said "This report highlights the central role that low-cost wind will play in the UK's clean energy system in the decades ahead, so that consumers reap the full benefits of cheap electricity, as well as the importance of developing new technologies like renewable hydrogen, wave and tidal power. The NIC is right to urge the Government to continue with the positive progress they've made so far and to be ambitious in its vision to reach net zero emissions using a wide range of clean sources".
