Britain’s exit from the European Union has presented unprecedented challenges particularly for companies with significant export markets, complex global supply chains and an international workforce. But alongside these risks there are significant opportunities.
Following the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement reached on 24 December 2020, the Government requires insight from business to recognise where problems remain and where opportunities exist. We provide our clients with straightforward political and communications support to help navigate Brexit.
Away from Brexit, the Government’s Industrial Strategy aims to build a long-term partnership with business to generate greater prosperity, skills and productivity. The prospect of upgrades in infrastructure, major commercial investment, and a commitment to research and development present significant opportunities for companies who engage strategically and professionally with Government.
The Government has delivered on its commitment to publish its remaining net zero strategy documents ahead of the COP26 Summit in Glasgow, with two weeks to spare. The Heat and Buildings Strategy, Net Zero Spending Review, as well as the overarching Net Zero Strategy were all published this week, albeit following months of delay. Publishing these documents was seen as crucial to the UK’s preparations ahead of hosting the summit. Despite this, the success of the conference continues to be riddled with uncertainty and doubts.
Last week Brevia Energy released the findings of its audit of the Government’s 2020 Energy White Paper. The results, which were covered by Energy Live News, highlighted how nearly half of the commitments included in the Energy White Paper have been hit or look likely to be reached. However, the research also showed that answers to the ‘Who Pays?’ question remain needed. With the Government expected to publish both its Net Zero Strategy and Heat and Buildings strategy soon, greater detail on that may be soon forthcoming. That is likely to provoke debate about the direction of policy and open new fronts for businesses to make their case about how the net zero transition should be delivered.
Since the beginning of August 2021, the UK has experienced a record increase in gas prices, which has grown into a retail energy crisis that has already caused ten suppliers to exit the market this year. This crisis is the product of several factors, which the UK Government will seek to remedy in the short term and avoid in the long term. This means regulatory reforms are almost inevitable. Once the crisis is over and government turns to reforming the UK’s retail energy market, businesses that operate within it must actively engage with policymakers and regulators to ensure their voices are heard.
