Any changes to governmental policy will cause wholesale changes to the structure of the industry overnight. Governments across Europe are reviewing their regulatory policies with Spain's proposal to the EU to decouple gas and energy prices. And the UK Government's Review of Electricity Market Agreements (REMA), set to be published in December, will potentially see an overhaul to policy that has not changed in the last 20 years.
The panel will discuss what these policy changes could mean for the industry and how best to prepare yourself to mitigate, and profit from, any changes that do come into place.
