The government is committed to ensuring security of energy supply and affordability for consumers and businesses, while meeting legally-binding decarbonisation targets. This involves a diverse portfolio of power generation technologies, including renewables, nuclear, and fossil fuels.

HM Treasury and Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) keep all aspects of the tax system under review, to ensure that it supports the government’s objectives.
