UK Energy Policy

A Little Less Intervention, A Little More Action

The UK is facing major energy challenges. Aging infrastructure, greater reliance on gas imports and tighter controls on emissions, mean that the landscape is changing. Investment is required on a huge scale in order to maintain security of supply and affordability to consumers, while at the same time reacting to environmental goals.  We have cast a critical eye over the policy measures, which have been under development for several years and are currently making their way through parliament. We suggest that rather than complex interventionist policy, the market needs a clear long-term framework within which it can work to solve the problems we are facing and attract external investment.
