Brexit and its Implications for EU Energy and Climate Policy

Following the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union, it seems highly unlikely that the UK will seek to remain a formal member of the EU Single Market or the European Customs Union. 

This direction of travel raises serious issues for the UK’s future relationship with the EU Single Energy Market in Electricity and Gas and with the EU Emissions Trading System, since the UK has been a key member of both of these arrangements. This will also have potentially profound implications for the UK’s immediate EU neighbours and for the EU as a whole, in the energy and climate policy areas.

Amidst these unsure times, CERRE will publish a new research paper, to shed light on these issues. The report will explore:

  • How the UK’s institutional involvement with energy and climate will change via ACER, ENTSO-E, ENTSO-G, the Single Energy Market, the Energy Community, and other relevant bodies;
  • The possible implications for the operation of interconnections and future interconnector investment with UK’s immediate EU neighbours;
  • How the UK’s energy and climate policy might change in the light of Brexit and what it might mean for the EU; and
  • What the priorities for negotiation should be on both sides.

The findings and recommendations of the report will be presented and debated at this CERRE Executive Seminar, bringing together key representatives from the European institutions, together with academic experts, regulators and key actors of the European energy sector. 

This event is reserved for CERRE members' representatives and a select number of invited guests.  

*A detailed programme as well as a list of speakers will be available in the coming days*
