Is There a Plan ? UK Energy Policy for the 2020s

In putting in place an energy policy fit for the 2020s and beyond, developments in the next parliament will be crucial. How will a department that combines energy with industrial strategy affect the shape of the UK’s energy policy? How should we secure the new infrastructure needed for decarbonisation through the 2020s and beyond? Will the new industrial strategy capture the benefits of emerging smart technologies for UK consumers and companies?The inter-connectedness of industrial strategy, emission reduction commitments, and rapid technology development will provide key themes for discussion at this conference.
