Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Delivering on Carbon Budgets (24 Mai 2024)

Claire Coutinho: Earlier this week we were proud to be able to announce that we had decided to forego the option to carry forward any over-performance from the third carbon budget to the fourth carbon budget. Following that, I want to give an update on our progress on delivering against the UK's world-leading system of carbon budgets. We are extremely proud to have met, and indeed exceeded all three of the...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Oil and Gas Overlaps with Offshore Wind Projects (24 Mai 2024)

Claire Coutinho: The North Sea Transition Authority have announced three tranches of licences from the 33rd Oil and Gas Licensing Round. Production from these licences will support our world class oil and gas industry and help maintain the UK’s energy security. Data published by the Climate Change Committee shows that the UK will continue to need oil and gas, alongside abatement technologies, even when we...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Nuclear Policy Update (22 Mai 2024)

Claire Coutinho: In January this Government published the Civil Nuclear Roadmap which represented the biggest expansion of nuclear power for 70 years. It set out our ambition for 25% of our power to come from nuclear by 2050. Since then, the Government has been powering on to deliver the Roadmap commitments. We have launched the next phase of the Small Modular Reactor (SMR) Technology Selection Process, with...

Energy Security and Net Zero: Grangemouth Oil Refinery (21 Mai 2024)

Claire Coutinho: My Department attended the Grangemouth industrial just transition leadership forum alongside Scotland Office Ministers and representatives of Unite the union on 28 March. We remain in close contact with the Scottish Government and the owner Petroineos. My hon. Friend the Minister for Energy Security and Net Zero met Scottish Government counterparts and Petroineos management on 15 May and...

Energy Security and Net Zero: Grangemouth Oil Refinery (21 Mai 2024)

Claire Coutinho: We are working with the Scottish Government and Petroineos to understand all possible options for the future of the refinery. I remind the hon. Gentleman that the Conservatives are the only major party who are backing the North sea, the biddings it brings in each year and the hundreds of thousands of jobs that it supports, while a new report last week showed that Labour’s plan could lose as...

Energy Security and Net Zero: Net Zero Target (21 Mai 2024)

Claire Coutinho: We are on track to reach net zero by 2050, and we will do so in a way that brings the public with us. We overachieved on our third carbon budget by 15%, and we announce today that we will not be rolling that over as we think that we will be able to overperform on carbon budget 4 as well.

Energy Security and Net Zero: Net Zero Target (21 Mai 2024)

Claire Coutinho: I know from experience that my hon. Friend is a doughty champion for his local area and for the aviation sector. My Department is in regular contact with the Department for Transport and the Treasury on aviation decarbonisation and the important role for sustainable aviation fuel in that transition. On 25 April, DFT published a consultation on options for a revenue certainty mechanism...

Energy Security and Net Zero: Net Zero Target (21 Mai 2024)

Claire Coutinho: I remind the hon. Gentleman that we have one of the most remarkable records when it comes to renewable energies. The only country that has built more offshore wind than us is China, we have set out the largest expansion for nuclear, and we are at the forefront of cutting-edge technologies such as fusion, hydrogen and carbon capture.

Energy Security and Net Zero: Net Zero Target (21 Mai 2024)

Claire Coutinho: There is a balance to be struck, which I believe we are striking, in ensuring that we can make the most of the jobs and opportunities of the energy transition, which will support up to 480,000 green jobs in 2030. But, yes, when it comes to additional costs, we are taking a measured approach because we want to protect households.

Energy Security and Net Zero: Net Zero Target (21 Mai 2024)

Claire Coutinho: I would find the hon. Lady’s questions more credible if she would at least once welcome the fact that we are the first country in the G20 to have halved emissions. On our progress, I am proud that one of the reasons that we have come so far is technological fixes, because of the remarkable progress that this country has made in renewable energy. That is why we overshot on our first, second...

Energy Security and Net Zero: Net Zero Target (21 Mai 2024)

Claire Coutinho: Let us be clear: the Court did not question the policies that we have set out, which we have done in more detail than any of our peers. It did not question the progress that we have already made, as the first G20 country in the world to halve emissions, and it did not question the ambition of our future targets, which are among the most ambitious of our peers. If the right hon. Gentleman...

Energy Security and Net Zero: Net Zero Target (21 Mai 2024)

Claire Coutinho: I have learned in this role that the right hon. Gentleman likes to call people who disagree with him names. Last week, representatives from the Tony Blair Institute said that his plans would raise bills and harm our energy security. Are they flat earthers? An industry report said last week said that his plans would see up to 100,000 people lose their jobs. Are those people who are worried...

Energy Security and Net Zero: Topical Questions (21 Mai 2024)

Claire Coutinho: Since I was last at the Dispatch Box, we have been building up Britain’s energy security. We have taken the next step in the biggest expansion of nuclear in 70 years, making Britain a producer of advanced nuclear fuel and pushing Putin out of the global energy market. Just today, Rolls-Royce announced that it will invest millions of pounds in bringing new jobs to Sheffield to manufacture...

Energy Security and Net Zero: Topical Questions (21 Mai 2024)

Claire Coutinho: I thank the hon. Lady for her question. During my career, I have looked at the issue of prepayment meters for a long time, and one of the things that I am proudest of is our taking out the premium that people on prepayment meters were paying.

Written Answers — Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Question (21 Mai 2024)

Claire Coutinho: This Government created a standalone department to focus on energy security. We are driving tyrants like Putin out of our energy markets. We are leading one of the world’s largest renewables programmes and driving forward the largest expansion of nuclear in 70 years, making our future energy in Britain.

Claire Coutinho: Food security is an essential part of national security. This Government is fully committed to delivering robust UK food security and recognises its paramount importance to our national security. This is reflected in our commitment to maintain the current level of food we produce domestically. Heightened geopolitical risk has brought this into sharper focus and we think it is more important...
