Conference: Is There a Plan? UK Energy Policy for the 2020s
10 October 2017
With Brexit, new political dynamics and a new business and energy department, the context for UK energy policy is changing. This year sees the publication of a number of key set-piece policy documents – including the Government’s Green Paper on Industrial Strategy, the Emissions Reduction Plan, the National Infrastructure Commission’s assessment of priorities, and an Energy Smart Systems Report due later in the year. The inter-connectedness of industrial strategy, emission reduction commitments, and rapid technology development will provide key themes for discussion at this conference.
