Our vision is of a thriving, globally competitive, low carbon energy economy.
Our key priorities are to:
Save energy with the Green Deal and support vulnerable consumers
Deliver secure energy on the way to a low carbon energy future
Drive ambitious action on climate change at home and abroad
Manage our energy legacy responsibly and cost effectively¬†
Renewable Energy Policy
The government is committed to increasing the proportion of energy from renewable sources.
Exploiting our abundant renewable resources will make a strong contribution to our energy needs, allowing us to be less reliant on others and therefore increasing our security of supply.
Our drive to increase the proportion of energy we obtain from renewable sources will also provide significant opportunities for investment in new industries and new technologies.
The government will help business develop in this area to put the UK at the forefront of new renewable technologies and skills.
The Office for Renewable Energy Deployment (ORED) acts as a first point of contact for renewable businesses in the UK, with a clear remit to address delivery issues across a range of deployable renewable energy technologies, including:
Putting in place appropriate financial incentives to support the take-up of renewable energy, including reform of the Renewables Obligation; Feed-in-Tariffs for small-scale electricity; and a new Renewable Heat Incentive;
Overcoming supply chain blockages and promoting business opportunities in the renewable sector in the UK;
Promoting the use of sustainable bio-energy;
Supporting cost-effective deployment of wave and¬†tidal technologies.¬†
