Maintaining energy investment in wake of Brexit vote

Category : News


Ahead of SSE entering its close period on 28 September, our Chief Executive Alistair Phillips-Davies has written to Greg Clark MP, the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, outlining the company’s views on the implications for energy consumers following the UK’s decision to vote to leave the European Union.

In the letter SSE outlines its three priorities for the development of the post-Brexit Great Britain and Northern Ireland energy markets are for Government to:

Provide stability for future and existing UK energy investments by maintaining existing energy policy frameworks;
Ensure continued security in UK energy supplies by retaining the ability to access and trade with European electricity and gas markets; and Enable Northern Ireland energy consumers to continue to benefit from market efficiencies by maintaining the Single Electricity Market and arrangements for gas.
