Closed 8 Jul 2024

Opened 13 May 2024


The core fuel sector resilience measures in Part 12 of the Energy Act 2023 aim to ensure that government can identify fuel supply risks and support industry to maintain and improve fuel supply resilience.

Section 276 of the Energy Act 2023 allows the Secretary of State to make regulations to require certain core fuel sector participants to provide information regarding their activities and assets at specified intervals to strengthen sector resilience.

The information obtained from routine reporting will allow the government to:

  • identify critical national infrastructure
  • run impact assessments
  • monitor sales and stock levels
  • plan mitigations for potential issues

This consultation seeks to set out the details of the proposed requirements and ensure that they are workable and appropriate for the relevant core fuel sector participants, and will include the proposed data collection, timescales, who is required to provide this.
