The Prime Minister created the Department to give an even greater focus to solving the twin challenges of climate change and energy supply. The Department brings together much of the Climate Change Group, previously housed within the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), with the Energy Group from the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR).

Research and Analysis at the Heart of Policy Making
Economists, operational researchers, social researchers and customer insight specialists play a key role in the policy process, providing robust evidence to underpin appraisal and evaluation for all aspects of DECC policy. Our analysts work alongside policy colleagues, statisticians and scientists to ensure policy decision-making is informed by high-quality analysis and a robust evidence base.
This section outlines some of the work we do and explains its importance in developing a robust evidence base to inform policy decisions.
