The EIUG responded to the EAC's inquiry into accelerating the transition from fossil fuels and securing supplier. Its main points are:
- Businesses are also energy consumers;
- Government should support the deployment of the
least-cost low-carbon energy sources;
- Energy markets are interlinked and any significant measure taken abroad to
reduce reliance on Russian natural gas or oil will have a price impact in the UK;
- High energy prices risk leading to demand destruction of energy intensive
industries and scaling back manufacturing productions as products may not be
able to compete internationally.
