Specific recommendations include: UK/EU post Brexit cooperation on setting long-term GHG emission targets; For climate change and energy to be addressed together in a comprehensive Climate and Energy Chapter so that respective EU and UK climate and energy interests can be balanced; Agreement to prioritise delivering zero tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade between the EU27 and UK in low carbon goods and services; Agreement to no tariffs on energy trading, efficient trading arrangements across UK/EU interconnectors and cooperation in developing markets for shared electricity balancing services.
