UK and Germany Renewable Energy Partnership Announced
UK and German governments have today announced that they have entered into a partnership to cooperate on accelerating offshore wind and electricity interconnection projects, improving carbon capture, utilisation and storage efforts
The key objective of the partnership to enhance energy security and reinforce the commitment of both nations to achieving net zero emissions goals.
This collaboration was formalised in a recent agreement signed by UK Energy Security Secretary Claire Coutinho and German Vice Chancellor Robert Habeck.
Energy Security Secretary Claire Coutinho said: “The UK and Germany agree on the importance of clean, affordable energy and we both recognise its crucial role in growing our economies and guaranteeing national and global energy security.”
German Vice Chancellor and Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Action Robert Habeck said: “Germany and the UK face similar challenges.
“We have made good progress regarding the transition towards climate neutrality, but there is still a long path ahead of us. Cooperation with reliable partners can help all partners to advance not only faster, but better.”
Until we have created a more secure and sustainable environment to generate electricity in the UK, we are going to see a lot more volatility on the energy markets in the years to come.
