Current | Ten Point Plan reactions: A ‘vital step forward’, but does it go far enough?

Late last night, Prime Minister Boris Johnson released his Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution.

The energy industry and its customers have desperately needed clarity on how the government intends to meet its net zero goal. The Prime Minister’s announcement lays the scene for some big industry changes, and now that the Prime Minister has set his agenda, the energy sector has a genuine opportunity to take control of its low-carbon future.

This is the moment that the UK energy policy has been formally co-opted to the energy agenda and lays down the marker for the decades ahead. The 10-point plan sets the high-level principles, and the Energy White Paper and the net zero spending review will help add flesh to the bones.
