Issue for Business: With more than 40% of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) coming from the energy sector, BEC welcomes the Government’s assessment of policy options that can help in accelerating the reduction of energy sector- related GHG emissions. BEC supports the acceleration of renewable energy (alongside other carbon reduction measures), particularly given the need to increase electricity capacity to support natural load growth and the decarbonisation of transport and heat.
