UK Energy Review

The Government’s report on the Energy Review was released on 11 July 2006.

For more information, see the associated press notice and the Secretary of State’s statement.

This work aims to put us in a position to meet the two major long-term challenges in UK energy policy:

  • we need to tackle climate change by reducing carbon dioxide emissions; and

  • we need to deliver secure, clean energy at affordable prices, as we move to increasing dependence on imported energy

The remit of the Review was to examine the UK’s progress against the medium and long-term 2003 Energy White Paper goals and consider options for further steps to achieve them.

We remain committed to the UK’s competitive energy market as the best way to deliver secure energy supplies and competitive prices. Our aim is to set the right regulatory framework to enable the market to move in the right direction to meet the long-term challenges.
