New Government, Uncertain World

Whether it be the 2014 collapse in oil prices, the US-China climate policy accord, falling demand in the OECD or the falling price of solar, the energy arena has a tendency to throw up unexpected changes, opportunities and challenges. This conference will explore the challenges faced by the new government in pursuing policy goals, given continuing and often unanticipated developments in energy markets.

Venue:BIS Conference Centre, 1 Victoria Street, London, SW1H 0ET

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 useful information and resources, plus a unique network of valuable contacts in academia, industry, finance and the public sector.
