Regulation and policy critical to the future of new energy

Delta-EE Director Jon Slowe was recently joined by representatives from the Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP) to discuss the role of policy and regulation in the energy transition.

Regulation and policy play a critical role, both with competitive networks and markets, but they were typically built around old energy. There is now a need to evolve, facilitate and lead the way to new energy.

How Brussels is pointing the direction for the European energy transition

All personal opinions regarding Brexit aside, there’s no denying that the European Commission and European Union has a huge influence over the energy sector. Recent episode of Talking New Energy, the Delta-EE podcast, focuses on what the latest policy coming out of the EU means for the energy transition.

It is not always easy to help countries understand the influence of the EU, but its influence is paramount.

Auto-switching: will energy customers relinquish control?

Auto-switching* is more than a concept – it’s emerging from Austria to America, Great Britain to Germany.  From Look After My Bills’ appearance on the UK’s Dragons’ Den, to articles a-plenty appearing across the news, it’s slowly but surely entering the mind of the public. But while energy consumers are gradually becoming more aware of auto-switching, although by concept rather than name, it’s still being met with suspicion by some. How can customers be assured they will, in fact, be given the best deal? Is it really as easy as it sounds? Where’s the catch?

In the first episode of Talking New Energy, the new podcast from Delta-ee, we discussed the important issues driving auto-switching forward, and the roadblocks standing in its way. Find out more headlines below.
