Setting out the UK's carbon emission cutting ambitions sends a "clear and cogent signal" to potential investors that the country is a good place to build sustainable business, commercial electricity users might agree.
This is the opinion of energy secretary Chris Huhne, who was speaking about why the government has outlined a fourth carbon budget, this time for the period between 2023 and 2027.
He noted that by the time the budget has run its course, carbon emissions will be half of those in 1990, giving business energy users a clear way to plan for the future.
The minister noted: "The downward carbon trend is now written in law."
He added: "Nascent industries can grow; established ones can adapt. Our economy will be better balanced - and our consumers will benefit from clean, secure energy at the least cost."
