Lee Rowley – 2022 Comments on Supporting High Energy Usage Businesses

The comments made by Lee Rowley, the Industry Minister, on 29 April 2022.

We want to keep the UK at the forefront of manufacturing, helping our energy intensive industries remain competitive and sustainable for the long term, and continuing to power our economy with thousands of jobs across the country.

We are not only extending our support through the compensation scheme, by offering a greater level of compensation to eligible firms, we are delivering more relief from electricity costs for these industries.
