There are currently 413 employees working in my Department. Of that number 207 work in the areas identified by the Deputy. The following table outlines the breakdown of staff numbers by area and by full time equivalent (FTE). This staff complement has significant experience in dealing with regulation issues and developing and implementing policy at international, EU, national, regional and local levels. In addition to its own staff, the Department also has access to scientific and technical advice in agencies under its aegis to assist it in delivering the Government’s policy objectives under the Department’s remit.

Staff Area NumbersFTE
Climate Action & Environment5453
Energy 5351
Petroleum Affairs 1615

As staff in all of these areas work on regulation issues it is not possible to determine the exact number.
