After 44 years in the EU the UK has started the process for leaving the Union. This process will have far reaching implications for energy markets and climate policy both in the UK and across the EU.
Since the UK’s referendum on EU membership, E3G has been working intensively with partners in the UK and EU27 to analyse the interests at play, develop scenarios for how the negotiations might play out, assess how the broad negotiation dynamics may impact climate and energy, and propose workable options for securing positive outcomes for climate change and energy.
By building a deeper awareness of the negotiation dynamics we hope to offer insight into the potential for catalysing continued UK-EU27 cooperation on energy and climate change, and demonstrate how such cooperation could provide the key for unlocking the wider negotiations.
With the headline negotiation issues of economic integration, movement of people and sovereignty likely leading the negotiations towards conflict, negotiators will be faced with a choice: cooperation or crash?
