Helping you make sense of the energy and water sectors


General Election 2019 and impacts on the energy sector

A recording of the webinar will be available for those that cannot make the broadcast time.

The outcome of the General Election on 12 December is very uncertain, with the political parties all campaigning on issues other than energy. However, as the political parties firm up their manifestos it is clear that there are widely divergent views from either end of the political spectrum on which direction energy markets could take in the next Parliament.

This webinar will present the policy positions of the main parties across the energy value chain and the implications for market structure and governance. Our expert presenters will summarise the parties’ commitments on:

  • Net zero
  • Heating and green gas
  • Ownership across the value chain
  • Nuclear stance
  • Transport decarbonisation
  • Energy efficiency/ building upgrades
  • Support for onshore renewables
  • Vulnerability/ fuel poverty
  • Role of devolved governments and the regulator
  • Carbon pricing

We will also present our own assessment on the impacts on market players of two possible outcomes of the General Election – a Conservative (majority/ minority) or Labour (majority/ minority) government – and what they may mean for existing policies and industry workstreams. Specifically, we will assess what the two scenarios may mean for

  • Generators (existing) – thermal, nuclear, renewables
  • Developers – CCS, nuclear, renewables, storage
  • Gas – decarbonisation/ hydrogen/ biogas/ blending
  • Networks – ownership, operation
  • Customers – households (including vulnerable) , businesses (including EIIs) and costs
  • Regulator – future remits/ roles/ duties
  • Government – devolution, department roles

There will be opportunities to ask questions of the presenters during the webinar.
