Prime Minister’s Plans to Build Back Greener welcomed by SSE

Responding to the publication of UK Government's Net Zero Strategy, Alistair Phillips-Davies, SSE Chief Executive, said:

"Delivering net zero will require huge investment in low-carbon technologies, and the way to bring that forward is to set a clear, long-term policy framework. So it is extremely helpful to see government today building out the key pillars of its approach as this gives low-carbon investors and developers like SSE confidence to keep investing on the required scale.

"The recent situation with energy markets underlines the need to invest in more indigenous clean energy sources, and critically the flexible solutions to back them up. The ambition has always been there and now we have a more detailed roadmap as we approach COP26. Next we need to get on and deliver; and we are looking forward to working with government to make the ambitions of net zero a reality."
