The Foreign Secretary launched the Balance of Competences Review in Parliament on 12 July 2012, taking forward the Coalition commitment to analyse and examine the UK’s relationship with the European Union.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change is leading on the area of the review covering energy and is seeking views from individuals and groups with an interest or experience in energy policy and its application on how the competence is used and what that means for the UK.

The public call for evidence on energy will run for three months from 24th October 2013 to 15th January 2014. Following the call for evidence, a report on the current balance of competence on energy and what this means for the national interest will be published in summer 2014.
