Flint supports companies at the heart of the energy transition to navigate the rapidly changing policy and regulatory environment that impacts investment and commercial plans.
Our specialist team comes from the most senior levels of energy regulation and policy. We use our unique insight and understanding of how policy and regulation will evolve to advise generators, network companies, retailers, and investors on how to positively shape the policy debate and manage regulatory risk.
We support businesses to take a proactive approach to policy and regulatory engagement to shape the debate, manage risks and maximise commercial opportunities.
Shape public policy that delivers commercial upside
We support companies to develop evidenced-based policy proposals that help enable commercial strategies. We use our experience to shape arguments that resonate with decision makers, help steer government policy and regulatory reform programmes, and enable long-term investment and returns.
Engaging with the regulatory and political landscape
We use our deep knowledge and experience to develop impactful engagement strategies that deliver companies’ policy agendas. Understanding the complex network of decision makers means we are able to shape engagement programmes and maximise your impact.
Price control support
Regulatory price controls are complex processes that are influenced by political forces. We draw on our direct experience to assess how the political context will impact price control decisions and advise clients on how to adjust their strategies. We support throughout the process from shaping overall strategy, red team reviews and business plan development.
We advise companies and investors seeking to originate, develop and finance complex projects that require new financing mechanisms or funding allocations from Government and wider public bodies to secure commercial advantage.
A late change to an incoming prudential regime resulted in a client’s international operations being brought in scope, meaning the client would be required to hold significant additional capital. The client needed support to consider the options and make a decision about how best to mitigate the impact of this.
