Rudd promises new emissions plan by the end of the year


 

Energy and climate change secretary Amber Rudd has said the government will provide full details of a new plan for cutting emissions before the end of 2016. Speaking on Tuesday 12 January at an event organised by the Aldersgate Group, Rudd acknowledged the need for new policies to ensure that the UK met its post-2020 carbon targets, and said that fresh thinking was required in areas such as energy efficiency and transport. She added: “I am clear that we must meet our obligations, but I am equally clear that this must not be at be expense of energy security, or by piling all the pain onto consumers. We have to be pragmatic, and we have to take the public with us.”
