Backing Britain: investing in the UK energy system 

The UK has a plan to boost long-term energy security and cut emissions and, at bp, we’re already hard at work on the challenge.

While today we’re mostly in oil and gas, we increased the proportion of our global annual investment that went into our lower carbon and other transition businesses from around 3% in 2019 to around 23% in 2023.


In the UK we plan to continue to invest in helping to maintain a secure supply of energy through North Sea oil and gas, as well as on solutions like offshore wind, EV charging, hydrogen and carbon capture. These plans go beyond investment in infrastructure - they also see us supporting the economy, skills development and job opportunities in the communities where we operate.
