The Department released a major White Paper in July 2009 setting out its purpose and plans. The majority of DECC's spending is on managing the UK's historic nuclear sites, in 2012/13 this being 69% of its budget spent through the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, and this is expected to increase when the last of the UK's Magnox reactors are shut down and no longer produce an income.
