Brexit

I am proud that the LSE (Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building) is hosting a conference on Brexit and Energy Markets (the 2nd of its kind), organised by the awesome Leigh Hancher and Adrien de Hauteclocque.

It will take place on Thursday of next week (12 April).

I have just been told that, there are a few places available. You can register (for free!) here.  A pdf of the programme, in turn, can be found here. Students interested in energy issues would be most welcome to attend.

More info on the event? Please see below:

This conference, a follow-on from our first initiative in March 2017, aims to consider the wide-ranging impact of Brexit on the UK and EU energy markets, from a legal and economic perspective, and assess the developments and challenges which have emerged over the past year.

  • How might a self-determined UK attempt to establish itself in the energy market outside of the EU?
  • What will be the effect on electricity and gas trading?
  • How will the UK’s exit impact EU market integration initiatives, such as market coupling, cross-border capacity mechanisms, and the development of network codes?
  • How might it affect the EU ETS?
  • What are the repercussions of the UK leaving the Euratom Treaty?
  • The UK has promised that it will not shirk from it’s commitment to plans for an integrated all-island single electricity market in Ireland (I-SEM). But how will this work? How might this play out from a regulatory perspective?

These questions and more will be addressed through in-depth discussions at the conference.
