According to Mr. Hallas, Brexit could potentially impact energy trading in the 6 following ways:

  • Cross-border energy trading: will the current arrangements be put at risk?

  • Carbon pricing: UK withdrawal from ETS could have carbon pricing impacts in the UK and the remaining EU

  • New electricity interconnectors: uncertainty does not help, but the basis remains wide and the fundamentals are supportive of robust projects

  • Level playing field issues: GB generation vs. imports. Recently highlighted by Uniper UK.

  • Transaction reporting: possible ‘double reporting’ and risk of ‘double regulation’

  • Energy and climate policy: potential impact on political dynamics post-Brexit
