There have been no new commitments to provide public funding for overseas gas power-related projects since 12 December 2020.

However, UK Export Finance have continued to provide support for the fourth phase of General Electric's ongoing "Power Up Program" in Iraq. This includes providing essential maintenance, parts and services to improve efficiency and safety for various power stations. This is in line with the UK's newly introduced Fossil Fuels policy.
