Energy policy


What is energy policy?

Energy policy covers a broad range of activities by government, regulators and companies that affect energy issues. It covers their decisions and the analysis to support these decisions, which influences every aspect of the energy industry.

Why is it important?

Governments have a huge impact on the development and deployment of energy technologies. In failing markets, robust and effective energy policies are vital. Energy policy covers everything from the pricing of carbon to protecting poorer consumers to investing in low carbon technologies.
