United Kingdom

Since the beginning of the COVID19 pandemic in early 2020, United Kingdom has committed at least USD 59.82 billion to supporting different energy types through new or amended policies, according to official government sources and other publicly available information. These public money commitments include:

  • At least USD 39.33 billion for unconditional fossil fuels through 10 policies (10 quantified)
  • At least USD 170.65 million for conditional fossil fuels through 2 policies (2 quantified)
  • At least USD 12.54 billion for unconditional clean energy through 13 policies (10 quantified and 3 unquantified)
  • At least USD 3.58 billion for conditional clean energy through 8 policies (5 quantified and 3 unquantified)
  • At least USD 4.21 billion for other energy through 8 policies (6 quantified and 2 unquantified)

By energy type, United Kingdom committed at least USD 38.66 billion to oil and gas (at least USD 38.57 billion to unconditional oil and gas and at least USD 92.57 million to conditional oil and gas).

In addition, no public money commitments identified for coal.

Further, no public money commitments identified for hydrogen based on fossil fuels.

Finally, United Kingdom committed at least USD 78.09 million to multiple fossil fuels (at least USD 78.09 million to conditional multiple fossil fuels).

A considerably larger amount of public money committed to supporting the economy and people of United Kingdom through monetary and fiscal policies in response to the crisis may also benefit different elements of the energy sector. However, these values are not available from official legislation and statements and therefore are not included in the database. Meanwhile, in addition to monetary and fiscal measures, the database lists other policies and regulations that can also provide benefits to producers and consumers of different energy types.

These public money commitments are additional to many other government policies that had existed to support different energy types before the COVID19 pandemic.

As part of the government’s plans to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, drivers will be encouraged to make the switch to electric vehicles through the introduction of green number plates. The plates will make it easier for cars to be identified as zero emission vehicles, helping local authorities design and put in place new policies to incentivise people to own and drive them. For example, drivers could benefit from local initiatives such as cheaper parking and cost-free entry into zero-emission zones where those with a green number plate will be recognised as eligible.

They can be used at remote locations thanks to their size, and can produce enough energy to power anything from a small village to a medium-sized city. £30 million of funding will speed up the development of 3 AMR projects in Oxfordshire, Cheshire and Lancashire and drive them closer towards supplying low-carbon energy to the nation. The remaining £10 million will be invested into unlocking smaller research, design, and manufacturing projects to create up to 200 jobs.
