In response to the outcome of the 2024 general election in the UK, the Tank Storage Association has expressed its anticipation to collaborate with the newly elected government in implementing their stated commitments. Peter Davidson, the chief executive of the association, emphasised the importance of a mission-driven and forward-focused industrial strategy for the country, with partnership as a central element.

Recognising the integral role of the bulk storage and energy infrastructure sector in the global supply chain, Davidson highlighted its potential for growth and its significance in the UK’s journey towards carbon neutrality. He emphasised that the sector is poised to lead the way in exploring new possibilities and contributing to positive change.

The Tank Storage Association’s key priorities include advocating for an industrial strategy that acknowledges the sector’s substantial contribution and innovative capabilities, facilitating access to necessary resources such as capital and talent, and fostering partnerships to ensure that the sector becomes a catalyst for transformative change in the coming decades.
