Scope of the inquiry

This inquiry examines the implications of the UK's departure from the EU on the energy sector and the UK's national climate change commitments and determine which policy areas should be prioritised for continued cooperation during the exit negotiation process.

The UK energy sector has extensive links with the EU through trade, directives and interconnection. While Member States, including the UK, retain sovereignty over their energy mix, substantial parts of UK energy policy have been driven by EU-wide directives and proposals. The UK's climate change agenda has similarly been shaped by a mixture of national and international policies, including EU initiatives.
