Power industry helps UK towards meeting Kyoto emissions targets

May 14, 1999 02:00 AM

Welcoming the Government's publication of figures showing that the UK is expected to meet its Kyoto target of a 12.5 % cut in greenhouse gas emissions by 2008-2012, Philip Daubeney, Chief Executive of the Electricity Association said: "We share the Government's confidence that the UK is well on course to meet its Kyoto obligations, which is excellent news. And as the Energy Minister John Battle acknowledges, the electricity industry has delivered most of the 9 % reduction achieved so far."
"Since 1990 the power sector has cut its CO2 emissions by around 26 %, offsetting increases from other sectors. Combatting climate change doesn't stop with Kyoto, and if we are to go beyond that, and towards the Government's goal of a 20 % cut in CO2 emissions, then the Government must ensure that other sectors, in particular transport, domestic housing and business, carry their fair share of the burden."

The Electricity Association is the trade body which represents the UK electricity industry on a national and international level.
Members comprise all the major electricity generation, transmission, distribution and supply companies in the UK.
