The repatriation of competences in climate and energy policy after Brexit: implications for devolution and multi-level government

28 January 2019

This briefing paper explores the effect of Brexit on the territorial governance of climate and energy policy in the UK. It first provides an overview of EU climate and energy policies, and the extent to which they have shaped policy and action across the UK. It then explores the opportunities and constraints facing policy makers within the UK and devolved governments once the UK leaves the EU, and the scope for new shared governance in climate & energy policy.
