Laura Cohen, chief executive of the British Ceramic Federation, said the lobby group was "disappointed not to see clearer proposals to benefit United Kingdom competitiveness on energy for ceramics and other energy intensives industries".
While specific energy-related commitments are scant - the government has already published its Clean Growth Strategy which outlined these policies in detail - the strategy does discuss the need to remodel the national electricity grid to enable the various different kinds of renewable generation that are coming on-stream.
The strategy "heralds a new approach to how government and business can work together to shape a stronger, fairer economy", Mrs May said in the foreword to the document.

Mr Clark said the new industrial strategy would strengthen infrastructure and the business environment in an effort to improve productivity.
The section of the Industrial Strategy linked to the circular economy and the waste and resources strategy due out in 2018 look to be aligning with the European Commission's circular economy proposals which are nearing completion.
The paper briefly sets out measures to achieve this, saying that the government will work towards raising resource productivity of businesses through the promotion of recycling and strong secondary materials markets "where products are designed with efficiency and recycling in mind". Better planning for waste and waste-derived resources around the country, especially to provide sufficient capacity of the right kind in the right place to support local economic development, is a key ask.
There is of course mention of the 25-year Environment Plan, long promised by the government and hoped for in the first months of 2017, and a new strategy for resources and waste, confirmed in the Clean Growth Strategy. It will help create the conditions where successful businesses can emerge and grow, and support these businesses in seizing the big opportunities of our time, such as artificial intelligence and big data, whilst also making sure our young people have the skills to take on the high-paid, high-skilled jobs this creates.
