Priorities for UK Energy Security – Government Strategy, Development of Domestic Energy Sources, Electricity Market Reform, and Net-Zero Policy
This conference will examine next steps for UK energy security and for achieving greater clean energy independence for the UK.
With discussion on current pressures, long-term priorities, and the Government’s energy security strategy, it will be a timely opportunity to assess the UK’s future energy mix and capacity to increase domestic supplies, while continuing to decarbonise electricity and power sources and protect consumers against rising energy costs.
It will also be an opportunity to assess priorities and the future direction of Government policy with a new Prime Minister in place.
Sessions in the agenda look at:
- the British energy security strategy – the way forward for reducing dependency on imported fossil fuels – accelerating the transition towards a clean energy system
- stakeholder priorities – addressing key challenges – industry role and obligations – energy efficiency – mitigating impact on business and consumers – the future of net-zero policy ambitions
- geopolitical and trade uncertainties – options for improving UK self-sufficiency – the wider UK strategic response
- UK energy mix – the developing policy landscape – the future shape of energy markets – the role of renewables, nuclear, oil, and gas
- achieving UK long-term energy security – priorities for investment, innovation, and commercialisation – international relationships – sector development
- policy – priorities for UK electricity security and electricity market reform
