The PEPP 2000–2003: Resistance to Change

  • Caroline Kuzemko
Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)


By the time New Labour took office in 1997 the new PEPP had been established despite some difficulties experienced, particularly in the early to mid-1980s. This chapter opens with the claim that regardless of the change of government, which could theoretically have presented a firm test for the new paradigm, the PEPP did not markedly shift from the market position. The period from 2000 to 2003 can be understood as one largely of continuity in energy governance. Judged on Labour’s first term in office it could indeed be argued that the PEPP came to represent an even more depoliticised system – in technocratic and marketised terms – than that established by the Conservatives.
