With Brexit, new political dynamics and a new business and energy department, the context for UK energy policy is changing. This year sees the publication of a number of key set-piece policy documents – including the Government’s Green Paper on Industrial Strategy, the Emissions Reduction Plan, the National Infrastructure Commission’s assessment of priorities, and an Energy Smart Systems Report due later in the year. In putting in place an energy policy fit for the 2020s and beyond, developments in this 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? This conference will bring together experts from energy industry, the financial sector, the policy community and academia to explore these questions and consider the way forward for UK energy policy. The inter-connectedness of industrial strategy, emission reduction commitments, and rapid technology development will provide key themes for discussion at this conference.
