"Our Energy Challenge: securing clean, affordable energy for the long term" is a consultation document published at the start of the 2006 UK Energy Review, which is being led by Energy Minister Malcolm Wicks .
According to The Guardian, the document "sets out five key questions that the energy review [Wicks] chairs will consider. One of the top ones is to acknowledge that the global energy scene is changing dramatically at a time of declining North Sea oil and gas. Britain needs imports at a time when China and India are also competing for similar supplies, Mr Wicks pointed out." 
The metadata on the PDF gives the author's name as Chris Lombard - this may simply be a junior civil servant. A slightly older revision of the document (January 20th) is available here: there appear to be only cosmetic differences between the two versions.
