New policy for overseas fossil fuel support

On 1 April 2021, BEIS published a report on how it will stop supporting the fossil fuel energy sector overseas.

What does this mean to the end-user?

  • This document sets out the Prime Minister’s plans to cease new direct financial or promotional support for the fossil fuel sector overseas
  • It follows a consultation on the topic last December, which also proposed ideas to accelerate the growth of UK clean energy exports
  • End users may find the policy paper useful in determining their own position on these issues

The outcome of the consultation is published here and the original consultation document is available here.
