The BIEE’s 2016 Oxford research conference will explore the theme of disruption and innovation which are characteristics of current energy industries and markets, nationally and globally. Every part of the energy sector is experiencing rapid change and high rates of innovation, with some examples of managed transitions, but often with disruptive transformation driven by external factors.
The 2016 two day academic conference will consider how energy economics and policy analysis can help chart a course through the uncertainties, facilitating technology development, investment and securing consumer trust, towards low carbon, secure and affordable sustainable energy systems in the long-term.
The themes of plenary sessions will align to key drivers of change in the energy system, such as technology and innovation, natural resource constraints, and geopolitics. Within this framing, the conference will look at global energy markets, European and UK energy policy.
The conference will take place on Sept 21-22 2016 at St Johns College Oxford.
More information on the Conference will be published on the BIEE website in November and call for abstracts will go out at the beginning of December.
