The UK’s future relationship with EU electricity markets following its exit from the EU will be determined by negotiations between the UK and the EU. The future of the EU Internal Electricity Market will be determined by negotiations on the Commission’s proposals for market design. In both these negotiations the Government remains committed to getting the best deal for consumers.
