Welcome to the weekly highlights from the Lexis®PSL Environment team for the week ending 2 March 2017. This week’s edition highlights includes a look at the House of Lords consideration of the UK’s future exit from Euratom, the commencement of construction of the new ElecLink electricity connection between Britain and France, Ofgem regulatory updates in relation to unbundling and its mid-period review and proposals to lower payments to some embedded generators. We also include updates on new and existing consultations published by the European Commission and Ofgem and highlight content from other practice areas which may be of interest to energy lawyers. This week, we have published new trackers in relation to the Contracts for Difference (CFD) scheme and the Capacity Market (CM), each of which displays the current status and most recent developments, covering consultations, regulatory guidance publications and key amendments to the CFD and CM mechanisms. In connection with these new trackers we have published a new overview Practice Note on Electricity Market Reform (EMR) and have updated our existing content in relation to the CFD scheme and the CM. Other new content includes a new Practice Note in our ‘Alternative Fuel’ series, looking at e-mobility.
