  • Environmental & Social Policy in the UK Energy Market

    This course covers the various support mechanisms operating in different parts of the UK energy markets. For the past two decades, successive Governments have implemented policies designed to support environmental objectives. Some of these mechanisms operate as a tax on emissons, while others provide subsidies to various forms of electricity generation and renewable heating technologies. There are also social support mechanisms introduced to reduce the cost burden of these measures on the most vulnerable consumers. This course describes all of these mechanisms, detailing how they operate, how they are accessed, and how their costs are recovered.
