SDRN Mailing, 24 May 2017

This new UKERC report argues that energy cooperation over the past decades has helped European countries to enhance their geopolitical security, respond to growing climate threats, and create a competitive pan-European energy market. Maintaining close cooperation in this field, and the UK’s integration in the European internal energy market (IEM), will be important for the UK and the EU27 post-Brexit.

Europe aims to obtain 20 per cent of its growth from industrial processes by 2020 and at the same time has set itself incredibly ambitious environmental targets.

This recent Green Alliance report looks at how small scale, low carbon energy technologies such as solar panels and electric cars are rapidly falling in cost as their popularity grows. The UK’s future energy market will not only consist of passive customers buying power from big and distant power stations. Instead it will increasingly be owned and operated by those who purchase these technologies.
