‘An Introductory Guide to the GB Energy Industry’ is a series of eight separate chapters commissioned by Energy Systems Catapult and Energy Innovation Centre. This is Chapter 6 – Energy Policy.
It provides a succinct overview of the current structure, key players, and emerging trends of this rapidly evolving market. It is aimed at those new to the sector, those looking for a broader perspective and those with sector experience looking to consolidate their understanding.
It won’t make you an expert in 40 pages, but it will give you a clearer picture of the current state of the market. We have provided nine key sections detailing the key areas of the market. These are:
- The role of government
- Historic role of the trilemma
- Overview of subsidies and support
- Large scale low carbon
- Small scale low carbon
- Low carbon cost controls
- Energy security
- Capacity market
- Current policy focus
The complete guide will also be available as a PDF download once all of the chapters have been released.
Each section has been authored by a subject expert from Cornwall Energy.
