This is a report on the House of Commons Committee Stage of the Energy Bill. It complements Library Research Paper 11/36 (Energy Bill) prepared for the Commons Second Reading.

The most substantial amendments to the Bill relate to the introduction of regulations on the energy efficiency of the private rented sector. A clause on nuclear decommissioning was withdrawn and is to be reintroduced at a later stage by the Government. There were also new clauses relating to carbon capture and storage, and renewables in national parks.
