SSE is a UK-listed energy company focussed on the energy markets in the UK and Ireland. SSE’s core purpose is to provide the energy people need at home and in the workplace in a reliable and sustainable way.

With the UK’s forthcoming exit from the European Union, this is a genuinely pivotal moment to shape a competitive, productive and sustainable future for the UK economy. SSE wants to work constructively with the incoming UK Government, and has plans to invest around £6bn in the UK between 2016 and 2020. Below SSE outlines five recommendations to be pursued in the interests of energy customers and the country as a whole.

  •  Put competition at the heart of the energy retail market to benefit consumers

  • Ensure a cost-effective transition to a lowcarbon economy by committing to a stable and robust carbon price in the 2020s

  • Build on Britain’s global leadership in the wind sector by putting it at the centre of a modern industrial strategy

  • Support the network charging infrastructure to facilitate electric vehicles

  • Improve tax transparency and ensure businesses play fair with tax
