Labour Leader Kier Starmer has told the Labour Party conference in Liverpool that a Labour government would set up a new publicly owned energy firm with an ambition to achieving 100% clear power by 2030.
- According to Starmer, "Great British Energy" would be publicly owned and set up within the first year of a Labour government.
- Starmer: "The future wealth of this country is in our airs, in our seas and our skies... British power to the British people."
- Lewis Goodall at Sky News: "Anyone who says Starmer is channeling reheated Blairism isn’t listening. He’s far more comfortable with a statist turn. Just announced establishing a state owned “Great British Energy” to operate within energy market."
