Energy and Climate Seminar 2 : Brexit and Decarbonisation – What’s the Agenda ?

Brexit raises many questions for UK climate policy and regulation, with a wide number of policies affected. Questions raised include whether the UK continues to participate in the EUETS and Effort Sharing Regulation, the role of renewables, and the operation of interconnectors. Two speakers who have looked closely at the issues will give us an overview of what will need to be worked through over the next two years and beyond.

Speaker(s):Owen Bellamy, The Committee on Climate Change Anthony Frogatt, Senior Research Fellow, Chatham House

Burn Out: New Book from Dieter Helm

An energy revolution is under way with far-reaching consequences for nations, companies, and the way we address climate change. Low oil prices are sending shockwaves through the global economy, and longtime industry observer Dieter Helm explains how this and other shifts are the harbingers of a coming energy revolution and how the fossil fuel age will come to an end. Surveying recent surges in technological innovations, Helm’s provocative new book documents how the global move toward the internet-of-things will inexorably reduce the demand for oil, gas, and renewables—and prove more effective than current efforts to avert climate change.


New CCC Report: Energy Prices and Bills

UK climate action has reduced emissions without increases in household energy bills, new analysis by the Committee on Climate Change shows. While measures to deliver a cleaner, low-carbon electricity system added around £9 a month to the typical UK household energy bill in 2016, this was more than offset by a cut of over £20 per month due to reduced energy demand mainly from more efficient lights and appliances.
