What Does The UK Government “Energy White Paper” Mean For Businesses?

by Simon Thompson
 

If you are wondering what is going to happen to business electricity and business gas prices in the next ten years, and how ‘net zero’ transmission policies will affect your business, then read on.

The UK Government released its “Energy White Paper” in December last year (2020) which explained how they planned to move the UK to a net-zero future by decarbonising all sectors. In the report is the plan they aim to follow in order to cut carbon emissions by 230 million metric tonnes in the next ten years, while also supporting 220,000 jobs.

But what does all this mean for business? Well, if you are a business owner you will be faced with making some quite radical changes over the coming years, which can be broken down as follows:

  • A shift towards zero-emission electric vehicles (EVs). The UK Government has banned the sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2030 which means you need to start thinking about how you are going to switch your business fleet to electric vehicles now.
  • The construction of greener, and more efficient buildings. Gas boilers will need to be switched to more environmentally friendly options, such as low carbon or hydrogen-ready models. In the meantime, you can switch to greener business gas suppliers UK such as D-ENERGi
  • The movement towards a flexible and low-carbon energy system. The UK Government has committed to generating emission-free electricity by 2050, which focuses mainly on wind and solar power. In the meantime, the easiest way for you to start reducing your carbon emissions as a business is to switch to a green business energy tariff.

 

This pledge by the UK Government to reach net-zero by 2030 means that now is the best time for you to start thinking about how you can help them to deliver on their climate change commitments. There are lots of opportunities out there for businesses who are serious about contributing to this decarbonisation challenge – whatever sector they are in or whatever size their business is.  Starting down the pathway of carbon reduction now will help you to balance both your environmental and economic aims, while also helping you gain control over your energy costs and increase your business resilience.
