Business Green | Energy white paper: The green economy reacts

The government has today finally published its long-awaited Energy White Paper. It sets out the vision for building a zero emission energy system featuring ambitious plans to scale up renewables.

Commenting on the government’s release of the Energy White Paper, Gareth Miller, CEO of Cornwall Insight, said: 

The Energy White Paper maps out the biggest change to the energy markets since the Electricity Act of 1989. Many of the headlines will focus on policy for investment, and carbon pricing with plenty in that builds on the 10-point plan and National Infrastructure Strategy. The most high-profile addition is the commitment to reach financial close on at least one more large nuclear project during this Parliament, and the announcement surrounding a UK Emissions Trading Scheme.
