In-person registration is now closed.

Fireside chat: Sector focus - Energy

The energy retail market is in flux with Europe’s high dependency on Russian gas, soaring energy costs and the effect of this on consumers’ finances as well as the net zero agenda pushing the issue to crisis levels. In 2022, Ofgem made proposals which included three suggestions concerning financial resilience of energy companies including ringfencing customer credit balances, hedging and capital adequacy proposals. However, the market will be impacted by the rulings of the insolvency proceedings of energy companies to apply to the High Court in 2021 to review judgement on obligations of suppliers. This panel will discuss:

  • Will the rulings for the 2021 insolvent energy companies impact legislation for energy companies in distress now? 
  • What rescue opportunities are available to struggling energy companies? 
  • What are the implications on debt holders of the Energy Transfer Scheme as seen in Octopus Energy’s take-over of Bulb in 2022?
