Welcoming Amber Rudd MP as the new Secretary of State of (Cabinet Minister responsible for) the UK Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC).
Over the next months, in this Blog I will be posting more information about Energy, Renewables, and Microgeneration, including the progress I make on my own project to install and run photovoltaics.
The Secretary of State has overall responsibility for the business of the Department, including:
* department strategy and budgets
* energy market reform
* carbon price
* Annual Energy Statement
* energy security
* National Security Council
* Carbon Plan
* Renewable Energy Strategy
