What might Brexit mean for energy prices, and what can social landlords do to prepare? In this Q&A video, Arjan Dosanjh – commercial director at Monarch Partnership – explores these potentially challenging questions
He suggests that the UK’s decision to leave the EU will drive greater speculation in the energy market, specifically on electricity, citing the increase in prices that has already occurred.
Where things go from here will be entirely incumbent on the trade agreements the UK ultimately makes with the EU, Mr Dosanjh argues.
But he suggests social landlords can protect themselves from such unpredictability by changing the way in which they think about electricity and energy; moving from a consideration of supply to demand and finding ways to be more sustainable.
