More than 100 energy and climate change regulations are to be scrapped or improved in a bid to cut "red tape" for businesses, the government has announced.

Energy Minister Charles Hendry said that, following a review, 86 regulations would be dropped completely while a further 48 regimes would be "improved". The full package of reforms, including other initiatives

by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), is expected to save businesses around £400m over the next 20 years, he said.
