Energy is a traditional area for cooperation among European countries, driven by the interdependence that characterizes energy supply, distribution and industry. Yet, it is unlikely that energy policy will occupy a central role during the negotiations on future relations between the UK and the EU. To explore the implications of Brexit, Chatham House, Exeter University and the UK Energy Research Centre have produced a report which explores the implications of Brexit on the UK and EU energy sectors and highlights key areas for the negotiations, including the Emissions Trading Scheme, interconnectors, funding and finance, Euratom and relations with the Republic of Ireland. At this event, the key findings of the report will be presented and there will then be an opportunity to discuss this with the authors and the contributors of the report.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
