The UK Energy Summit 2012
The UK continues to face a range of urgent and critical energy challenges, with £200bn investment needed in the next two decades to build an infrastructure that will securely deliver low carbon energy, at affordable prices.
Policy decisions taken now will reverberate for decades. At this critical juncture, The UK Energy Summit 2012 will bring together policy makers, industry leaders, investors, regulators, innovators and influential thinkers to discuss how the UK’s vision for the energy sector is unfolding and what further actions are required to achieve a secure, low carbon economy.
Issues to be discussed include:
- Are current policy reforms far reaching enough? How can any shortcomings in the current market be readdressed?
What incentives will unlock the required huge investment in energy infrastructure?
- What do global trends suggest for the UK’s energy security?
- What are the main threats to the UK’s energy security, both now and during the transition to decarbonise our energy system?
- What future energy mix is needed to meet climate change targets? Can nuclear play a viable and sustainable role?
- Which technologies are most likely to be effective in achieving climate change targets and meeting future energy demand?
- What are the most promising energy innovations? How can new energy technologies be taken into the marketplace more quickly?
- With consumer confidence in UK’s energy providers in crisis, what measures will increase consumer engagement?
- How will the needs of tomorrow’s energy consumer drive innovation in the marketplace over the next five years?
