The UK is legally bound to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2050. The UK is not on track to meet targets and this infers high degrees of energy policy change to engender sustainable transformations in how energy is produced, managed and consumed. UK energy policymakers must now also make decarbonisation decisions within a new political context: Brexit. This adds a further layer of complexity, and uncertainty, given its wide-ranging scope, and associated potential political, economic and trade implications. This project seeks to conceptualise Brexit, and its UK implications, so that we can better understand it, and what it means for energy policy and politics.
