"After weeks of shambles on energy policy this warning from RenewableUK, the Carbon Capture and Storage Association and the Nuclear Industry Association should come as a wake up call to ministers."

Caroline Flint MP, Labour's Shadow Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, commenting on a joint letter from RenewableUK, the Carbon Capture and Storage Association and the Nuclear Industry Association calling on the Government to commit to decarbonising the power sector by 2030 and to bring forward the Energy Bill as soon as possible or risk losing investment in the UK, continued:

"The message is loud and clear: unless the Government ends the dither and delays and stops the mixed messages Britain will lose out on good-paying clean energy jobs and new industries which could bring badly-needed growth to our economy. The Government must commit to decarbonising the power sector by 2030 so that investors know Britain is open for business."
