Green economy reacts to the latest Spring Statement

Bright Blue’s latest report on decarbonising the UK’s gas networks, entitled Pressure in the pipeline, has had one of it’s policy recommendations adopted in the recent Spring Statement, as covered by Edie.

Bright Blue’s Director and co-author of the report, Ryan Shorthouse, said:

“The Government has rightly adopted Bright Blue’s policy of introducing an obligation on gas suppliers to ensure a certain proportion of green gas is in the grid. The detail is to come, but a new low carbon gas obligation on gas suppliers should be introduced by Ofgem in the next price control framework from April 2021."
