The no vote in Scotland - A closer look at Energy

DWF has a strong Scottish offering and works for a number of major clients with interests in the country. From a business perspective, the issues around currency, regulatory environments and EU membership no longer need to be resolved; but clients can be reassured that DWF understands the changing situation, and can be relied on to offer solutions whatever happens with newly devolved powers.

Following the outcome of the Referendum on 18 September, the position of the energy sector within Scotland remains uncertain, particularly the extent, if any, to which energy may be devolved in whole or in part. In the light of this uncertainty, we have identified a number of questions and issues to be aware of.
