United Kingdom

Since the beginning of the COVID19 pandemic in early 2020, United Kingdom has committed at least USD 75.91 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 40.21 billion for unconditional fossil fuels through 17 policies (11 quantified and 6 unquantified)
  • At least USD 1.98 billion for conditional fossil fuels through 9 policies (7 quantified and 2 unquantified)
  • At least USD 15.64 billion for unconditional clean energy through 30 policies (16 quantified and 14 unquantified)
  • At least USD 12.22 billion for conditional clean energy through 21 policies (14 quantified and 7 unquantified)
  • At least USD 5.87 billion for other energy through 15 policies (12 quantified and 3 unquantified)

By energy type, United Kingdom committed at least USD 39.54 billion to oil and gas (at least USD 39.44 billion to unconditional oil and gas and at least USD 94.23 million to conditional oil and gas).

In addition, some public money committed for coal (2 policies with the value of public money unquantified).

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

Finally, United Kingdom committed at least USD 79.49 million to multiple fossil fuels (at least USD 79.49 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.

This aims at keeping bills as low as possible, driving the UK towards its goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, and helping turn the UK into the ‘Silicon Valley’ of energy. The fund, which opens for application on 31st August, is part of Ofgem’s RII02 price controls for the electricity system operator and the network companies that operate GB’s energy pipes and wires. The fund will be approved by Ofgem and managed in partnership with Innovate UK. £450 million will initially become available over the next five years through the fund, with the option to increase in response to need and if innovators bring forward strong plans. Together, network companies, system operators, and the world’s leading businesses and researchers will use this money to drive big ideas that accelerate the transition to an emissions-free energy system and at the same time help to position the UK as a world leader in energy innovation. To apply for the first round of funding, network companies must address four major strategic challenges that are crucial for the energy transition. These are: - Whole system integration - Data and digitalisation - Heat - Transport Projects could range from ensuring the networks are ready to roll out clean heating solutions such as heat pumps to Britain’s homes to developing ways for network companies to work together across transmission, distribution, system operation, gas and electricity. Projects could also include developing new technologies for networks to support flexible energy solutions, such as battery storage technology, to ensure electricity is used and stored more effectively, thereby bringing down bills and emissions. Ideas need to be big, bold and ambitious with potential to scale across the networks upon completion.

The Mayor’s new Innovation Partnership will make it easier for social landlords and UK building firms to work together to upgrade ageing homes in the capital. The scheme will link up housing providers and builders through all stages of home retrofitting, from planning through to large-scale delivery. This will dramatically increase the pace of projects that upgrade cold, damp housing stock to homes fit for the future. The partnership has the potential value of £10 billion in retrofit works, which would create around 150,000 jobs over the decade. The Innovation Partnership is open to social housing providers across the UK, with at least £5 billion estimated that could be spent in London. As a key part of the Mayor’s target of reaching net zero by 2030, he is also seizing the opportunity for more solar energy on London’s rooftops. Sadiq’s energy programmes alone are expected to more than double the amount of clean energy London generates from solar, but more investment is needed to ensure the capital goes much further.

New legislation aims to tackle “premature obsolescence” in electrical goods – short lifespans built into appliances by manufacturers so that customers have to buy new ones sooner – and make them more energy efficient. The rules include a legal requirement on manufacturers to make spare parts available to consumers, which aims to extend the lifespan of products by up to 10 years and cut carbon emissions from the manufacture of new goods. The measures, which apply to white goods such as washing machines, dishwashers and fridges, as well as items such as TVs, aim to reduce the 1.5m tonnes of electrical waste the UK generates a year. New energy labels have also been introduced this week, to simplify the ratings, which had reached the point where most products were classed as A+, A++ or A+++ because of improvements in energy efficiency since the standards were first introduced. The simplified system is based on an A-G scale, with the bar raised for each grade so that very few appliances will now be classed in the top A standard. The new regulations, which the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy aims to bring into force in the summer, reflect what was agreed by the UK as an EU member state two years ago. They will apply in Great Britain, while EU rules will continue to apply in Northern Ireland.

The investment is matched by £175 million from industry. The challenge aims to bring together technologies in electrification, aviation systems and autonomy to create new modes of air travel and capability. It will: - create the aviation system of the future - increase mobility, improve connectivity and reduce congestion for people across the UK - advance electric and autonomous flight technologies to help the UK reach its net zero target - drive technology investment to the UK by increasing UK manufacturing and service opportunities. Funded through this challenge, Heathrow has started research for two projects that aim to reduce emissions, cut costs and make the airport more efficient. The two projects are Fly2Plan – looking at how technology can use the airport’s data more efficiently – and Project NAPKIN, which will develop a ‘blueprint’ for zero carbon aviation across the UK.

Planners also want to modify flight time controls, and to extend the daytime flight period available at Leeds Bradford Airport. Councillors voted by nine votes to five to agree to the plans in principle. The updated plans will now return to the council’s plans panel committee at a later date. The decision was met with considerable objections. Objectors to the plans, which included scientists and environmental campaigners, told councillors that further airport expansion would not be compatible with the UK’s climate targets.

The government (Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, aka BEIS) has published further details about its plans for the UK's new emissions trading scheme (ETS), after Ministers controversially decided to exit the EU scheme. As expected the new domestic carbon market is expected to largely mirror the EU ETS, which British companies have taken part in since its launch over a decade ago. However, the new document confirms one major change from earlier proposals, with the reserve price for allowances sold at auction increasing by nearly 50 per cent to £22 a tonne. The BEIS update also confirmed the scheme will cover the same businesses as are covered by the EU ETS and that free allocations of allowances will continue to certain industries so as to reduce the risk of 'carbon leakage'. In addition, it confirmed that alongside the auction reserve price the scheme would include a Cost Containment Mechanism (CCM) designed to allow the UK government and devolved administrations to address significant extended price spikes in the market by increasing the availability of allowances.

The plant is being developed by Drax in North Yorkshire and would be the biggest gas power station in Europe, with 3.6GW installed capacity; it is estimated that the plant could account for 75% of the UK’s power sector emissions when fully operational, , according to lawyers for ClientEarth, which brought the judicial review. In 2019 the Planning Inspectorate recommended that ministers refuse permission for the 3.6GW gas plant on the grounds that it “would undermine the government’s commitment, as set out in the Climate Change Act 2008, to cut greenhouse emissions [by having] significant adverse effects.” Andrea Leadsom, the secretary of state for business, energy and industrial strategy at the time of the planning application, rejected the advice and gave the project the go-ahead in October 2019. The high court rejected ClientEarth’s initial legal challenge in May 2020.

The proposed development is for a large underground metallurgical, or "coking coal", coal mine. The mine will produce coal for use mainly in steel production. Its progress has been hindered by campaigns from environmental activists who fear that the facility could hinder the UK’s net zero goals. The government could have called in the plans; however, in January 2021 they decided not to block the Cumbrian coal mine.

The application for the Dewley Hill coal mine project was submitted earlier in 2020 by Banks Mining, which argued that the project would provide essential fuel to the UK’s steel and cement sector. Its plans were built around extracting up to 800,000 tonnes of coal and 400,000 tonnes of fireclay each year.Banks Mining also pointed to the job creation potential of the project amid the backdrop of Covid-19. It argued that the mine would create 200 full-time equivalent roles for the local area. Newcastle City Council, however, concluded that the project was not compatible with the UK’s climate targets or its own commitment to net-zero by 2030 and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Moreover, the UK Government has enshrined in law a commitment to stop the use of thermal coal power plants by 2024 – a deadline recently brought forward from 2025. The ban does not apply to the materials sectors Banks Mining was intending to supply, but there is the risk that legislation will become tighter in the near future.

In response to the global climate emergency, the Scottish Government brought forward primary legislation to amend Scotland’s emissions reduction targets. In October 2019, the Climate Change (Emissions Reduction Targets) (Scotland) Act 2019 received Royal Assent and was commenced in March 2020, setting annual and interim emissions reduction targets for Scotland, on a trajectory to net zero emissions by 2045. These targets include the interim goal of a 75% reduction in emissions by 2030 (relative to the 1990 baseline). The updated plan also includes a number of policies in various areas, most of which will be taken forward through legislation throughout 2021.

The global green bonds market has surged in recent years, with analyst Moody's recently projecting total issuance worldwide could grow to between $175bn and $225bn by the end of 2020. But while a growing number of countries, including the likes of Germany and Sweden have issued sovereign green bonds, the UK has yet to do so. Meanwhile, the fast-growing sector has been dogged by concerns that a lack of clarity over what constitutes a green or climate bond could result in some nominally green funding being channelled to support polluting infrastructure. Moreover, in addition to issuing its first green gilts, the UK will seek to implement a green taxonomy that would provide a common framework for determining which activities can be defined as environmentally sustainable, building on EU's on-going efforts to develop its own green taxonomy.
