While we were discussing the energy security and decarbonisation challenges of today with industry colleagues, Rishi Sunak was overseeing a major reshuffle that saw the breakup of BEIS and a new, dedicated Department for Energy Security and Net Zero – under the stewardship of Grant Shapps.
What impact the new Department for Energy Security and Net Zero will have on energy policy remains to be seen. But, as a leading energy transition and carbon reduction company, Fleetsolve welcomes the creation of a department dedicated to the most pressing issues of our time.
We hope this signals a clear commitment from government to accelerate UK energy efficiency and decarbonisation. It is vital that help and support can be available for UK businesses to grasp the economic opportunities this presents.
