If implemented properly, the government’s planned reform of the UK energy sector should make it easier for carbon reduction targets to be met

By Samuel Fankhauser


The government intends to fundamentally overhaul Britain’s electricity sector. No fewer than three consultations are currently underway on proposals for electricity market reform. Samuel Fankhauser finds that the legislative flurry is motivated by a combination of climate change goals and energy security concerns, and argues that after years of deregulation, the reforms would also usher in more state intervention in Britain’s electric power sector
