The Department does not hold this information. However, we recently published an Energy Investment Report which showed significant levels of investment since 2010.
· January 2010 and 2013 mobilised over £45 billion in low carbon energy infrastructure,1 which will also support up to 250,000 jobs in the low-carbon energy generation sector by 2020.
· In 2013 DECC estimates that over £14bn was invested in electricity generation and networks.
· Nearly £8 billion invested across a range of renewable technologies in 2013 alone – a record year.2
· UK is the most attractive market in the world for investment in offshore wind and marine renewables.
