The Government is seeking broad energy cooperation with the EU to establish a framework to facilitate technical cooperation with European bodies, such as ENTSO-E and ENTSO-G, and data sharing to facilitate efficient trade over interconnectors over different timeframes. We believe there are strong mutual benefits from continuing to work closely together on energy after the UK leaves the EU.
