Electricty market reforms must also consider practical delivery of infrastructure, say engineers

Responding to the Climate Change Committee report into the electricity market reforms out today, director general of the Institution of Civil Engineers Tom Foulkes said:

"It is crucial the electricity market reforms sufficiently reduce risk for investors in renewable energy projects if we are to avoid demand outstripping supply in future. However, equally important will be facilitating the practical delivery of this infrastructure; ensuring wider policy and regulation enables the construction sector to deliver efficient, timely solutions. Government must recognise that even the most theoretically robust reforms to the investment environment will fail to be effective if construction is hindered by ongoing practical issues such as planning delays, specialist skills shortages and a stop-start approach to infrastructure development."
