ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the re-emergence of energy policy-related issues in Great Britain. According to Michael Jacobs, a special adviser to former Prime Minister Gordon Brown, there is a major struggle within the coalition over the Green Investment Bank (GIB) and the move to a low-carbon economy. He pointed out the pledge made by the last Labour budget to fund the GIB with one billion British pounds from the sale of public assets. He also emphasized the need for the government to decide on the development of carbon capture and storage technology.
