In a previous role as Shadow Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change 2008 – 2010, Greg was responsible for two landmark policy papers in Energy and Climate Change policy: “The Low Carbon Economy” and “Rebuilding Security”, which set out how a Conservative Government will make Britain a leading player in the low carbon economy.

Latest News Topics


Burn Out: New Book from Dieter Helm

An energy revolution is under way with far-reaching consequences for nations, companies, and the way we address climate change. Low oil prices are sending shockwaves through the global economy, and longtime industry observer Dieter Helm explains how this and other shifts are the harbingers of a coming energy revolution and how the fossil fuel age will come to an end. Surveying recent surges in technological innovations, Helm’s provocative new book documents how the global move toward the internet-of-things will inexorably reduce the demand for oil, gas, and renewables—and prove more effective than current efforts to avert climate change.


New CCC Report: Energy Prices and Bills

UK climate action has reduced emissions without increases in household energy bills, new analysis by the Committee on Climate Change shows. While measures to deliver a cleaner, low-carbon electricity system added around £9 a month to the typical UK household energy bill in 2016, this was more than offset by a cut of over £20 per month due to reduced energy demand mainly from more efficient lights and appliances.
