Lawrence Slade has been confirmed as Chief Executive Officer of Energy UK, the member association representing the UK’s energy sector.
Mr Slade has been acting CEO since Angela Knight left at the end of 2014. The appointment was made by the Board of the association and is effective from today.
Mr Slade said: “Our members are looking to the future and how their businesses can deliver secure, clean and affordable energy to all their millions of domestic and business customers.
“I know Energy UK will rise to fresh challenges as they arise and will continue to work tirelessly for all our members.”
In an interview with ELN last week Mr Slade said the Summer Budget for energy was “disappointing”.
