The Government has been working with Ofgem, Utility Regulator, and the system operators and wider industry on a significant programme of work to ensure the UK will be ready for EU Exit in all scenarios, including in the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal. This includes a process of amending legislation and taking regulatory decisions to ensure existing measures in the UK electricity system are in place to deliver continuity of supply and new trading arrangements are in place for the electricity interconnectors at the point of EU exit.
