Policy, discontinuity and risk in energy markets

Thursday September  24th 2015
BIS Conference Centre, 1 Victoria Street,
London, SW1H 0ET


This conference will focus on the recent upheavals in global energy markets and their impact on UK energy policy as we move into a new parliament.

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 risks. The conference brought together experts from the energy industry, the financial sector, the policy community and academia to explore the challenges faced by the new government in pursuing policy goals,  given  continuing and often unanticipated developments in energy markets. It looked at how policy affects investment, innovation and emissions reduction in this rapidly changing world.
