To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, how much of her Department's funding allocated in the Spending Review 2015 will be for research and development expenditure up to 2020.
2 December 2015
The Spending Review 2015 set out settlements for departments and showed how the government will deliver on its priorities, eliminate the deficit, and deliver security and opportunity for working people.
For the Department of Energy and Climate Change this means doubling DECC’s innovation programme to £505 million over 5 years, which will strengthen the future security of supply, reduce the costs of decarbonisation and boost industrial and research capabilities.
Final decisions on internal departmental funding allocations for future years, including for other research and development, have not yet been made.
