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

Forthcoming events

19 Oct, 2017

Will Gas Become The New Coal?

Whilst the possible peaking in coal demand is being trumpeted as a victory in the battle against climate change, the role of natural gas in the energy transition remains contentious. Will it continue to feature in changing sectors and markets around the world? Or will it be vilified like coal, as just another fossil fuel? We have several speakers who will consider different aspects of this debate, in Britain and more widely, considering both the short and the long-term. In addition, the seminar will also feature, as usual, the annual UK gas winter outlook.

Venue:Institute for Contemporary Arts,12 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH

Speaker(s):David Joffe, Committee on Climate Change, Adam Hawkes, Imperial College, Robert Ritz, Vivid Economics, Marco Serafini, Shell, Simon Durk, National Grid

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
