UK energy challenges unchanged by Brexit: Rudd

UK energy challenges unchanged by Brexit: Rudd


 

Energy and climate change secretary Amber Rudd has reaffirmed the government’s commitment to tackling the energy trilemma following the vote to leave the EU. Speaking on Wednesday 29 June, Rudd said that Brexit would not see climate change “downgraded as a threat”, and that it remained one of the most serious long-term risks to the UK’s economic and national security. She said: “The UK will not step back from that international leadership. We must not turn our back on Europe or the world. Our relationships with the US, China, India, Japan and other European countries will stand us in strong stead as we deliver on the promises made in Paris. At the heart of that commitment is the Climate Change Act.”
