The agreement on energy in the Trade and Cooperation Agreement is mutually beneficial to the UK and the EU in helping achieve their respective climate change ambitions, making energy more affordable for consumers and in supporting security of supply. The Specialised Committee on Energy oversees the majority of the provisions agreed between the UK and EU in the Energy Title and met for the first time in July 2021; the agenda and minutes of the meeting can be found here: gov.uk. The UK is pressing the EU for a further meeting of the Specialised Committee on Energy as the Government would like to see the full implementation of the Energy Title as a matter of priority.
