It did not challenge the nature of the Capacity Market mechanism itself. The judgment removed State aid approval for the Capacity Market, preventing the UK Government from making any further capacity payments under existing agreements until re-approval.</p><p> </p><p>We are already working closely with the Commission to aid their investigation and seek timely State aid approval for the Capacity Market as soon as possible.</p><p> </p><p>The Government and National Grid will ensure that market participants are kept updated.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Under the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement after the UK leaves the EU on 29 March 2019, the UK’s participation in the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) will continue until the end of the Implementation Period. This aligns with the end of Phase III (December 2020) of the EU ETS.</p><p>The Political Declaration sets out that the UK and the EU have agreed to consider cooperating on carbon pricing through linking a UK national greenhouse gas emissions trading system with the EU ETS. The details of these arrangements will be a matter for the next phase of the negotiations. The Government will consult on our future approach to carbon pricing in due course.</p><p>In the event that the UK leaves without a deal in 2019, the UK would cease to participate in the EU ETS. To ensure stability and to meet the UK’s legally binding carbon reduction commitments under the Climate Change Act, a Carbon Emissions Tax would be introduced from 1 April 2019.</p><p>The Government is committed to tackling climate change. We are making strong progress towards our legally binding targets established in the world-leading Climate Change Act. Between 1990 and 2017, the UK reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by over 40% while growing the economy by more than two thirds - the best performance in the G7 on a per person basis.</p><p>We recognise the need to go further and the Clean Growth Strategy sets out our plans through to 2032, to build on our successes to date. It includes ambitious proposals on housing, business, transport, the natural environment and green finance.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government’s priority remains agreeing a deal with the EU. A ratified deal based on the provisions set out in the proposed Withdrawal Agreement would ensure that all UK participants can continue to receive EU funding from EU Programmes committed under the 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework for the lifetime of their projects. Horizon 2020, the EU’s research and innovation funding programme, is one such programme. This programme includes support for the development of clean and renewable energy technologies.</p><p> </p><p>If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, the Government’s underwrite guarantee would fund all successful competitive UK bids submitted to Horizon 2020 before exit. In this scenario, the extension to the guarantee, announced in July 2018, would also cover successful bids to Horizon 2020 calls open to third country participation that were submitted after point of exit, until the end of 2020. Both the guarantee and extension apply for the lifetime of projects.</p>
