Construction - News & Economics

EtF says there is a “pressing need” for interdependency planning in this area to ensure energy policies do not impact on the resilience of other infrastructure sectors and compromise their ability to meet future demands.

It also urges swift completion of the Energy Bill and the end to uncertainty around aspects of the Electricity Market Reform, which it claims is undermining the UK’s ability to confront the challenges around sustainability, security and affordability of energy supply and establish a stable policy environment for the future.

Chair of the steering group for Infrastructure Timelines and Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) Vice President, Professor Tim Broyd said:“Better coordination and alignment will enable potential problems to be identified and resolved early on, lessening any unintended consequences of isolated policy development and avoiding policy U-turns down the line. Importantly, it will also help Government in planning infrastructure policies that provide the framework for long term economic growth for the UK.” he added.

“We encourage Government to utilise the Timeline and also undertake further analysis of the potential consequences of inter-dependencies. We look forward to working with Government in future policy planning and development to ensure we are able to meet the increasing challenges of the 21st Century.”

Energy announcements in the £100bn infrastructure plan

Commenting on the energy announcements in the £100bn infrastructure plan set out today – Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) Director General, Nick Baveystock, said:



“Extension of the Government’s guarantee scheme and the inclusion of a guarantee advancing Hinkley Point C is a welcome and sensible step, demonstrating Government’s commitment to the role of nuclear as part of a wider energy mix that can achieve a secure and decarbonised energy supply and meet the challenges of security and affordability.

“Confirmation that guaranteed strike prices for renewable energy sources will be set out ahead of plan is also encouraging. As Government knows, to be a catalyst for increased certainty and clarity on long term strategic direction, swift agreement will be needed. Passage of the Energy Bill however, also remains crucial if we are to establish a stable policy environment and build greater confidence within industry and among investors.”

Strategic Forum To Help Drive Delivery Of Construction 2025

Members of the Strategic Forum for Construction have welcomed today’s publication of Construction 2025 – the new industrial strategy for construction, as a vital first step in the long-term transformation of our sector.

The strategy launched by the Government Construction Summit, has seen industry and government work together to agree for the first time a vision of how UK construction can become a global leader by 2025.

Members of the Strategic Forum worked closely with government to develop this vision, which will target improvements in the way the sector delivers skills; adopts new technologies and innovation through the supply chain; supports more sustainable construction; and drives growth in the wider economy.

Strategic Forum for Construction Chairman Bill Bolsover CBE said: “Over the last six months we have seen genuine partnership working between industry and government to produce today’s strategy. Construction 2025 has the full support of the Strategic Forum for Construction.

“However this must not be a document that sits on a shelf. There is a real opportunity to change our industry and we must grasp it. As the lead body representing all parts of the industry, the Forum is uniquely placed to fulfil this role”
