With the general election done and dusted, DECC has appointed its ministerial team to lead the energy and climate change agenda over the next Parliamentary term. Amber Rudd heads up the Department as Secretary of State, with Andrea Leadsom and Lord Bourne appointed to the roles of Minister of State for Energy and Climate Change and Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State respectively. Amber Rudd’s appointment in particular has been widely viewed as positive for the green economy.
