Energy policy and regulation – looking back to look forward

Our Head of Training, Ed Reed and Head of Relationship Development, Robert Buckley, mark 750 Energy Spectrum weekly bulletins with our latest podcast.

Our experts discuss policy and regulatory changes that have been covered over 15 years of analysis and commentary from the Cornwall Insight team. From this, they look at which issues have become less critical over time, which have become more pressing, and those that have morphed into other elements of focus as the sector continues to transition towards net zero.
Fairness, consumer consent, policy consistency, unintended consequences and clarity of purpose in policy and regulatory design all come up for discussion and how these characteristics may feature as the markets and policy landscape continue to coalesce and evolve.
