DECC response to the Budget

DECC has announced its priorities are clear following the Chancellor’s Summer Budget 2015.

Energy and Climate Change Secretary Amber Rudd said:

“We want to create a simple business energy tax system that rewards energy and carbon saving, as part of our long term plan to back businesses to increase productivity, support growth and jobs and secure their place in a competitive global market.

“UK business also has a vital role to play in meeting the UK’s climate change targets; by incentivising reductions in energy consumption and emissions, the government is giving business the tools to achieve that goal.”
