Conference: Invisible energy policy
21 September 2017
Our Acting CEO, Adrian Gault, will be a panel member at this conference. The event is being organised as part of the DEMAND Research Centre’s Invisible Energy Policy project, with support from the Research Council’s UK energy programme. ‘Invisible energy policies’ are described as ‘non-energy policies with significant – if mostly unseen or ignored – impacts on energy demand and carbon emissions’.
Conference: Is there a plan? UK energy policy for the 2020s

This conference will discuss the inter-connectedness of industrial strategy, emission reduction commitments, and rapid technology development. This is in the context of key policy documents that are due this year, including the Government’s Green Paper on Industrial Strategy, the Clean Growth Plan, the National Infrastructure Commission’s assessment of priorities, and an Energy Smart Systems Report.
