Energy Policy Debates

EI Energy Policy Debates, 2017 programme 

18 April - Government's Industrial Strategy - can policy keep up with the energy market?

Creating an industrial strategy that responds to the challenges of climate change and the economic challenges of a post-Brexit Britain is no small endeavour. Integrating business, energy, and industrial strategy into a new department (BEIS) creates an opportunity for decarbonisation to become fully embedded into the UK's industrial and business policy.

Will BEIS’s new Industrial Strategy take a long term view and adequately address the country’s energy and infrastructure needs? How far will it consider the need to upgrade the UK’s energy infrastructure? What will be its main objectives and how will it make a difference? Which technologies will it focus on and enable development of? Indeed, will it be R&D focused? 

Our panel will share views on these important issues while reflecting on whether policy is still relevant or if the energy market is moving away from policy, which many believe does not offer enough continuity.

Paul Massara, Chief Executive Officer, North Star Solar
Richard Howard, Director of Development & Head of Environment and Energy, Policy Exchange
Jeremy Nicholson, Director, Energy Intensive Users Group
