Breakfast Briefings

Breakfast Briefings

Energy UK hosts a series of Breakfast Briefings throughout the year on cutting-edge issues of interest to our members and stakeholders.  These range from policy-specific topics such as implementation of REMIT or the role interconnection plays in our energy mix to general discussions around the politics of energy or the digitalisation of utilities.  

Usually a panel session of two hours, the briefings provide an opportunity for guests to hear from an expert panel on a topic area before moving on to a Q&A discussion for sharing ideas and best practice.

We work with a range of partner organisations on these events and there are a number of sponsorship options available. These sessions are an excellent opportunity for showcasing thought-leadership and hearing from leading policymakers.  Further details on partnering with us for a Breakfast Briefing is available on our sponsorship page.

It is critical time for the energy retail sector.

However, the sector finds itself facing calls for further intervention and the Chancellor confirmed this week that the Government will shortly bring forward its consumer green paper.

The transition towards a more flexible energy system is at the heart of the UK’s move towards decarbonisation at least cost to the consumer.
