Consultation description

The Secretary of State for Energy & Climate Change and the Chancellor announced plans on 17 March to publish a Gas Generation Strategy in the Autumn.

The strategy will focus on the role of gas in the electricity market, and its aim is to attract investment in gas generation by overcoming any barriers, ensure energy security, meet the UK’s carbon reduction targets, and make the best use of the nation’s natural resources.
