United Kingdom


The Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) works to make sure the UK has secure, clean, affordable energy supplies and promote international action to mitigate climate change.

We are responsible for:

  • energy security
  • action on climate change –
  • renewable energy
  • affordability
  • fairness
  • supporting growth
  • managing the UK’s energy legacy safely, securely and cost effectively

Our priorities are:

  • supporting investment in the UK’s energy infrastructure – including through the Energy Bill, which will set in place the framework to bring forward the £110 billion needed in our electricity infrastructure over the next decade
  • supporting consumers and keeping energy bills down
  • promoting action in the EU and internationally to maintain energy security and mitigate dangerous climate change as we chart the way towards a global deal on climate change in 2015
