Danish Minisrty visit 1On Tuesday 12 June, CEPA - home to one of the leading teams of economists working across the utilities sector worldwide - was delighted to host a 15-strong delegation from the Utilities Division of the Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate at the firm's central London offices.

On a 2-day visit to England, the Danish delegation met with organisations that included BEIS, Ofwat, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) and CEPA with the objective to learn more about the UK's utilities sector, hear the first-hand experiences of different market participants and to share opinions about the challenges and opportunities the organisations face now and in the future.

Danish Ministry visit 2Following an introduction by Mark Cockburn, CEPA’s managing director, presentations were made by directors Patrick Taylor and Attila Hajos and by Ben Shafran, a managing consultant on topics that included: facilitating the energy transition, the security of supply and evolving the regulatory model.

The presentations and accompanying slides, which are available to download, prompted many interesting questions and were followed by much discussion about CEPA’s experiences and predictions for the sector. The discussion was only brought to an end as the delegation’s schedule demanded. However, having established these new links in Denmark, CEPA looks forward to continuing the conversations in the coming months.
