What is the government policy and legislative framework for
the electricity sector?
Government policy -
Following the EU Referendum held on 23 June 2016, a new prime minister was appointed and a new government formed. A number of government department changes have been made, including the consolidation of the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) with the Department for Business and Innovation to create the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The UK’s decision to exit the EU has also introduced a degree of uncertainty with respect to electricity sector policy in the UK.
