Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee
Inquiry launched on 27 November 2017. Oral evidence concluded.
The Clean Growth Strategy, published in October 2017, outlines how the Government expects the UK to meet its target of cutting emissions by 80% by 2050, while talks at COP23 in Germany were aimed at clarifying issues around the Paris Agreement which commits countries to the goal of limiting the global rise in temperature by 1.5⁰C.
MPs are likely to question the Minister on Government support for renewable energy, as well as how the UK will meet its emission reduction target. The Committee is also expected to ask about progress made in implementing the Paris Agreement and the UK’s role in UN climate change negotiations post-Brexit.
Evidence given by Chris Skidmore MP, Interim Minister of State for Energy and Clean Growth, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Ashley Ibbett, Director, Clean Electricity, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Tim Lord, Director, Clean Growth, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
