TSA comments on today’s announcement on the creation of a new Department for Energy Security and Net Zero and a combined Department for Business and Trade
Today, the UK Government has announced the creation of a new Department for Energy Security and Net Zero and a combined Department for Business and Trade.
Commenting on the announcement, Peter Davidson, Executive Director of the Tank Storage Association, said: “The tank storage industry is an essential part of the UK’s energy infrastructure, providing resilient, innovative and flexible solutions to the energy, industrial, transport and defence sectors. The industry has a key role to play in the energy transition and in creating the necessary infrastructure flexibility to manage change in support of the UK’s net-zero goals. Terminals are also an essential part of global infrastructure networks, ensuring that bulk liquids, from transport and heating fuels, chemicals, animal feed and foodstuffs, are supplied when they are needed in the quantities required. We look forward to working in partnership with the new Department for Energy Security and Net Zero and the Department for Business and Trade as we look to the future and opportunities ahead for our sector.”
