Policy Guidelines Providing Impetus for the Evolution of Electricity Trading and Pricing in the UK

Summary

The current policy structure of the European Union (EU) supports further development of the electricity trading markets in the UK and the EU as a whole. There is room for improvements to be made to energy technologies in the areas of demand and supply, the continuation of support for renewables and cogeneration, the preservation of current levels of energy fuel taxation in real terms, and stringent regulations surrounding acid rain pollutants. The development of efficient and competitive wholesale electricity markets presents a particular challenge as this is a network-bound energy commodity. It cannot be freely traded unless there is equitable third-party access to the transmission grid. However, there is a common view that in order to get these third parties to co-operate better while also stimulating greater investment in networks, the right regulatory framework is necessary.
