Focusing on the impact of Brexit on the United Kingdom (UK) energy sector through an examination of Energy Law, this short form title examines how the Brexit will affect the UK’s energy legislation and what will be the consequences of this. It then considers the core areas of market dynamics and access, supply, finance, specific energy source issues and relationships with neighbouring states. The culmination of a Brexit policy will result in a need for an Independent UK to make decisions on its energy policy and law sooner rather than later, and thus the text will also examine different scenarios that may arise in the future.
1. The future of UK access to the European Energy Market, and its integration initiatives such as market coupling, crossborder
balancing and cross-border participation in capacity mechanisms, along with import/export taxes and restrictions.
2. Availability of EU funds for energy projects and in particular for the European Common Interest Projects, such as the
Cluster France—United Kingdom interconnections and the European Energy Programme for Recovery.
3. Participation in regulatory bodies
4. Compliance to a number of directives such as the EU Renewable Energy Directive
(Directive 2009/28/EC), Directive 2012/27/EU on Energy Efficiency and the EU emission trading schemes (Directive
2003/87/EC, and the EU Industrial Emissions Directive 2010 (Directive 2010/75/EU).
5. Rules for Security of electricity and gas supplies
7. UK energy companies, energy disputes and arbitration
This shortform series follows the fallout of the UK’s pivotal decision to withdraw from the European Union, otherwise known as Brexit. As politicians and academics discern what this historic decision will mean for UK Law, the books in this series offer a legal library for students, scholars and legal practitioners.
Each book discusses Brexit through its own individual legal specialism, providing expert analysis on sectors which have long been dominated by EU Law. Recognizing a need for academic debate around these legal and political disputes, this series provides a multifaceted resource exploring contemporary issues.
