Energy policy post-Paris

 

Energy policy post-Paris

 

Fulfilling our climate change obligations post-COP21 means a complete transformation of our energy system. The shift towards to a smarter, safer, carbon-free and affordable system is set against a challenging landscape of volatile prices, changing demand patterns and expanding technology options.

This backdrop is further complicated by June’s referendum. Our energy future is intimately linked to the EU, so the outcome could profoundly shape what the energy transition means for the UK.

Policy experts E3G are closely following the debate, and following the success of our COP21 breakfast sessions, will be joining us for a breakfast session to share their views.

Date: Wednesday 18th May

Time: 8:30 – 10:00am

Location: Hill+Knowlton Strategies, The Buckley Building, London, EC1R 0EB

Come and hear from CEO Nick Mabey and Chairman Tom Burke on whether they think the energy transition will be orderly or disorderly, the implications of a possible BREXIT and how the right decisions for the energy sector can be a springboard for sustainable growth and greater security. Between them Nick and Tom have over 65 years’ experience advising Government, business and NGOs on climate issues, were instrumental in shaping the UK Government’s current commitments on climate change, and were closely involved in the Paris negotiations.

We have limited space available for this event, so please RSVP to isabel.davies@hkstrategies.com to register your interest, with your name, company and contact details.
