Abstract

Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom, which has left the European Union under the terms of Brexit. The Republic of Ireland is an EU Member State that has remained within the EU. The island of Ireland operates an all-island energy market, and the impact of Brexit on these complex transboundary energy arrangements has been largely overlooked. This study analyses and assesses the significance of Brexit for Ireland's all-island energy market so that the complexities underlying these transboundary circumstances, and the Brexit-related factors acting on them, can be better understood. An energy justice framework is employed that emphasises the consideration of potential distributional, recognitional and procedural injustices in this setting, and that assists in drawing out potentially negative impacts of Brexit on the all-island energy market.
