Video: Review of Energy Policy 2023

14 Dec 2023

In our annual Review of Energy Policy 2023, we highlight key areas of energy policy that a new government should address during their first 100 days in office.

While 2050 may seem distant, without an immediate step-change in implementation the UK is likely to miss its 2030 target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 68% and be off track for reaching net zero. The expected term of the next government will take us most of the way to 2030 and the new government must move quickly to step up to the delivery challenge.

Much of the required action involves the delivery of new and expanded infrastructure to generate, deliver and make use of renewable energy and other low-carbon energy sources. This infrastructure can take years to develop, involves billions of pounds of investment but will also help create jobs and economic benefits.

The review has been picked up by several media outlets:
