Dawes17

Simon recently joined the Review of Electricity Market Arrangements (REMA) team, acting as co-lead of policy development. REMA is a major new programme of work which aims to review Britain’s current electricity market design to identify reforms needed to transition to a decarbonised, cost effective and secure electricity system.

Prior to that, he was responsible for the GB Capacity Market, a key feature of the first Electricity Market Reform programme and the main mechanism for ensuring security of electricity supply. Other roles within the Civil Service have included a focus on fossil fuel generation and coal mining, including the phase out of unabated coal generation and the closure of the remaining deep coal mines; leading on policies to increase levels of recycling, particularly plastic packaging; and on cutting water pollution from agriculture.
