CCC highlights key roles for wind and hydrogen in green economic recovery

Commenting on the latest progress report by the Committee on Climate Change, RenewableUK’s Head of Policy and Regulation Rebecca Williams said:
“To meet net zero and recover from Covid, we need to put a rocket under our economy and that rocket has to run on clean energy. The CCC is clear about the huge opportunities right across the renewable energy sector and if we can invest early in emerging technologies like floating offshore wind and renewable hydrogen, the UK can build world-leading industries. A green economic recovery after the pandemic can create tens of thousands of jobs and attract billions in investment.”
“It’s good to see the CCC highlighting the Government’s upcoming White Paper on energy as an ideal opportunity to accelerate progress on electrifying and decarbonising the heat and transport sectors, as well as scaling up battery storage to provide even greater flexibility”.
