In this blog, Kyle Martin sheds light on the rare event of last Friday's blackout, how it happened and what are the learnings from it using LCP's Enact tool.
I’m the Head of Market Insight at LCP which involves working closely with clients to ensure they are kept ahead of the latest changes in policy and understand the challenges and opportunities available within the context of an increasingly complex market.
I have over 10 years’ experience in regulation and policy, with time spent within the carbon and energy sectors. Through these roles, I’ve gained a unique perspective into the impacts of policy and regulation on industry participants and stakeholders across the UK and Europe.
My prior experience at Energy UK involved leading the associations work on issues regarding electricity generation. This included reviewing changes to policy and regulation as well as quantifying the impacts for members. This enabled me to provide strategic advice about the latest developments and trends in the industry.
LCP are able to use technical knowledge to appropriately communicate relevant information to aid decision making.
