Is your organisation ready for the Labour government? 

The new government is wasting no time rolling out its ambitious plans for a net zero electricity system by 2030. In the last few days, we’ve seen announcements on Onshore Wind restrictions, the National Wealth Fund, and the launch of a Mission Control for clean energy. 

The proposals are expected to be transformative, making it an ideal time to review your strategy and ensure your business remains well-positioned in an evolving energy landscape.  

Our consultancy team provides comprehensive independent analysis, research, and market intelligence, ensuring your business stays ahead with the best available information. We can support with: 

  • Strategy review – Align your strategies with the new government’s priorities, revising assumptions and adapting plans to leverage emerging opportunities 
  • Risk management – Identify, assess, and manage risks resulting from change. Develop adaptive plans, reducing dependency on single projects and outcomes 
  • Scenario based planning – Develop credible scenarios to anticipate policy shifts, incorporating our detailed multi-year modelling, to enable swift and effective responses when the market moves 
  • Regulatory expertise – Navigate the impact of market design changes, code reform and the introduction of the National Energy System Operator (NESO)  
  • Stakeholder engagement – Work with key stakeholders, regulatory bodies, and industry partners to shape decision-making and stay prepared for new policy developments
