Offshore Energies UK has responded to todays news from the Department of Energy Security and Net Zero. Energy Secretary takes action to reinforce UK energy supply – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

David Whitehouse, CEO Offshore Energies UK comments:

“It is right for the nation’s energy security to replace ageing infrastructure with new gas fired power stations. Today gas remains the single largest source for UK electricity generation and will remain a critical part of our energy mix in the decades to come.

“On our journey to net zero, we should be making the most of our own UK gas reserves rather than imports. Backing our homegrown energy sector grows our economy, boosts jobs across our world class supply chain and delivers reliable supplies of cleaner energy for the UK.”

Offshore Energies UK has launched an industry manifesto calling on all parties and policymakers to choose a homegrown energy transition. You can download a free copy of the manifesto here.
