Companies are set to make £11.6 billion windfall on UK oil and gas in 2022. The UK government is missing this opportunity to fund an energy transition.
We are writing as a coalition of 37 civil society groups to call on the Prime Minister, the Chancellor and the Business Secretary to ensure the upcoming energy independence plan protects vulnerable households, lowers bills, tackles the climate emergency, addresses air pollution, and gets the UK off gas.
The International Energy Agency’s new Net-Zero Emissions by 2050 scenario, published in May 2021 and incorporated in the World Energy Outlook published in October, sparked wide debate on the future of oil and gas.
This report shares the testimonies of workers in the industry and their perspectives and priorities in the looming energy transition. The survey results show that morale is low amongst the workforce, who feel they are bearing the brunt of an industry in decline. But these workers are willing to retrain and move to new sectors. They want secure and well-paid work that makes use of their skills and experience.
