The Competition and Market Authority has led the Open Banking initiative, bringing more competition and innovation to financial services. The FCA has also established the Innovation Hub and Regulatory Sandbox to support Fintech, both of which are held up as global examples of best practice. Further information on the Government’s efforts to promote FinTech can be found in the FinTech Sector Strategy, published in March 2018.</p> more like this

The government has a growing programme of ambitious policies to drive forward progress towards this aspiration, including extending the Energy Company Obligation from 2022 to 2028 to support more than £3bn of investment to upgrade the energy efficiency of around a million more homes, tightening the regulations on minimum energy efficiency standards in private rented homes, and announcing the introduction of a Future Homes Standard to ensure that all new homes are built with world-leading levels of energy efficiency and low-carbon heating.

Looking ahead we have committed to further reducing our dependence on fossil fuels by phasing out unabated coal from our power system altogether by 2025. The Government is also enabling the transition away from fossil fuels in the transport sector by supporting the development of the market for ultra-low emission vehicles.</p><p> </p> more like this
