The voice of the energy industry

Environmental Regulation

The electricity generation sector is subject to a very high level of environmental regulation.

It is also a consistently high performer in terms of compliance with Environmental Permits, with 100% of regulated combustion sites within the Environment Agency’s ‘good performance’ compliance bands A, B and C (79% of which were in band A) in 2016

The vast majority of UK environmental regulation originates from the transposition and implementation of European Union Directives and Regulations.
