Carbon Policy in a Net Zero World

BIEE’s first Energy Webinar in 2021 will discuss carbon policy necessary for achieving Net Zero and the role of instruments such as the UK ETS. Dr. Danial Sturge, Energy Policy Advisor at Energy Systems Catapult, will discuss his work on approaches to carbon policy in decarbonising the whole economy. Whilst Vivienne Geard, BEIS’s Deputy Director for Carbon, Hydrogen and Industry Analysis, will focus on her team’s work on establishing the UK ETS and its role in decarbonising the economy.

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

New UKERC briefing on Net Zero Heating

Meeting the UK government’s net zero emissions goal for 2050 will only be possible by complete decarbonisation of the building stock (both existing and new). There is uncertainty over the extent to which heating might practically be decarbonised in the future and what the optimal technologies may be. This paper provides some clarity about the pathways forward, focusing on the next 5-10 years.

Business Discussion

Climate Assembly Report Published

The first UK-wide citizens’ assembly on climate change published its final report in September, setting out a clear, internally consistent and timely path for how the UK can reach its legally binding target of net zero emissions by 2050.
