The energy sector will be significantly affected by Brexit. The future of the UK’s membership of the Energy Union, the Internal Energy Market and Euratom are critical issues for the UK energy industry.
The UK Government has announced that securing affordable energy and clean development are at the heart of its Industrial Strategy and energy policy, so it is fair to assume that safeguarding the achievement of these aims, and maximising the opportunities that Brexit will create for the sector, will be crucial elements of its strategy as it negotiates the future relationship between the UK and the EU27 in the European energy markets.
In the meantime, it is imperative to ensure that heightened uncertainties do not deter much needed investment in the sector by foreign and domestic investors.
To assist companies with their planning and decision-making, and to provide a forum in which industry can share its ideas and concerns with government, City & Financial are organising ‘Brexit and the UK Energy Sector: Implications for Market Participants’ on 19th February 2018 in London.
The summit will bring together leading experts to provide a cross-cutting view of the implications of Brexit for the future of UK energy, examine possible scenarios and prepare for the fundamental changes ahead that lie ahead. The event will address the key questions that will help c-suite executives prepare for all the possible outcomes that may arise.
This highly topical event builds on the success of our BREXIT and Energy portfolios. Examples of the former include: The UK Financial Services BREXIT Summit, October 2016 and The Strategies for Preserving European Business Post BREXIT Summit, February 2017; while examples of the latter include: The UK Energy Investment Summit, January 2017 and The Future of the UK Smart Grid Summit, June 2017.
An impressive array of experts will guide delegates through the key issues, including:
- Securing affordable energy for the UK post Brexit
- Post-BREXIT status of the UK’s membership of the Energy Union and Internal Energy Market
- The UK’s post-Brexit energy policy and outlook of energy supply security
- Financing: how will Brexit affect investment in the UK energy sector?
- Future of energy trading and interconnectors; different Brexit scenarios
- Leaving Euratom and replacing the regulatory framework
- Energy market regulation post-Brexit
- The UK green targets post-Brexit
