In addition, the committee will examine a range of issues – including the overall performance of energy efficiency policies in the UK and lessons learnt from Green Deal and ECO.
Presentations to MPs will be made on 3 November by:
- Peter Broad, Policy Manager, Citizens Advice Bureau
- Peter Smith, Head of Policy, National Energy Action
- Philip Sellwood, Chief Executive, Energy Saving Trust
- Grant Bourhill, Director of Smart Systems and Heat, Energy Technologies Institute
The committee will also take evidence later in the day from Sir Patrick Brown and Andy Samuel, respectively chairman and chief executive of the Oil and Gas Authority, on the role of the regulator in the North Sea industry.
In response to the Wood Report – which called for MER collaboration from the industry – the Government set up the Oil and Gas Authority to maximise economic (MER) recovery of offshore petroleum. This one-off evidence session will examine how OGA intends to:
- improve efficiency
- revitalise exploration
- drive investment, and
- enhance collaboration on decommissioning
