    The 2nd Annual Energy Statement was delivered to Parliament on 23 November 2011. It aims to provide market direction, set strategic energy policy and help guide investment.

  • Energy security

    A vital part of DECC’s work is to ensure the UK’s energy supplies are:

    Against the backdrop of declining oil and gas reserves and production, international issues form an important part of energy matters in the UK.
