For 30 years BIEE has provided a focal point for informed discussion and debate of key energy issues in the UK.

Forthcoming events

18 Mar, 2019

Scottish Energy Seminar: ‘Are the world’s long-term decarbonisation needs compatible with a continuing role for coal?’

The 2018 BP Statistical Review suggests that the ‘war’ on coal is being lost, with last year seeing a growth in coal consumption of 1% and an increase of 1.5% in carbon emissions.The growths recorded are driven by emerging economies, mainly in India and China. Thus, however much we may achieve in the UK, if we are going to succeed in moving the world to a carbon emissions-constrained regime, progress will only be achieved if the emerging economies come on board.

Venue:University of Edinburgh Business School, 29 Buccleuch Place, Edinburgh, EH8 9JS

Speaker(s):Charles Hendry, Adrian Gault, Jorge Jorge Blazquez, Dr Xi Liang, Professor Stuart Haszeldine

The BIEE aims to encourage the exchange of ideas and information between energy professionals from different disciplines and sectors of the industry and to promote a responsible, evidence based approach to the challenges of energy policy and tackling climate change.

We have a diverse membership that cuts across traditional industry sectors with members drawn from academia, government, industry and finance.

BIEE is impartial, globally informed, and focuses on energy economics and policy.

Our members benefit from meetings, conferences and seminars throughout the year, access to latest papers, presentations  and videos of our events, plus a unique network of valuable contacts in academia, industry, finance and the public sector.

BIEE membership is available for companies, individuals and students and can be combined with membership of the IAEE
