In almost every market, energy is one of the most politically exposed parts of the economy. Even in times of relative calm, energy issues are never far from the surface of political consciousness. Now more than ever, those with an interest in energy have to understand and engage with the twists and turns of political debate.
The energy sector is in a period of existential change. We help clients to navigate these trends, drawing on deep energy expertise and years of experience working within, advising, and dealing with governments. Our aim is to help clients turn political knowledge into a competitive advantage.
We support clients by developing their government relations programmes. We develop and deliver strategies to communicate key policy messages and shape the wider political agenda.
We can support your public affairs team with a range of services:
Our team members worked with one of the UK's largest energy firms to support reforms that would encourage investment in stable power assets. Focusing on the GB Capacity Market and liaising with No.10 Downing Street, HM Treasury and BEIS, the engagement led to key reforms that support an increasingly renewables-led energy mix.
Helmsley worked with a client in its proposal to help deliver the British Government's target of phasing out new petrol and diesel car sales by 2030. We helped our client to raise awareness and understanding of a Zero-Emissions Vehicle (ZEV) Mandate among political stakeholders, leading to the adoption of the policy as Government's preferred option.
