  4. 4. What are the uncertainties and potential impacts of "Brexit"/the EU referendum result on the UK wind energy sector?

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Robert Mummery; [2019]
    Keywords : Brexit; Wind power; UK; Wind energy; Energy; Policy;

    Abstract : This study examines the potential effects of Brexit on the wind power industry within the UK. It became apparent that in order to reach the objective that the approach of the research needed to be broadened as it was found that Brexit has potential effects in many areas of the UK's electricity industry, including the import and export of electricity and the associated fuels used in the generation of electricity.
