The energy crisis is having a global impact. It has generated much debate around where we source energy, how we use it and how to protect consumers who are struggling to pay their bills.
In response to these issues, the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC), the Energy Institute (EI) and the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) are co-hosting an event which considers the implications of the crisis on prices, consumers and security of supply.
This is the second of two events exploring the energy crisis. In May, we looked at both short- and long-term actions; now, with the European heating season almost upon us, we will focus on immediate impacts and the coming winter.
Much has happened since our last event. Most notably, there has been a change of UK government leadership. This webinar will explore the impacts of the latest energy policy decisions in the UK in contrast to European responses to the crisis. It will cover the following areas:
• Price – the impact of the government’s recent policy announcements on consumers this winter.
• Emissions – the impact of the government’s recent policy announcements on the UK’s emissions.
• Europe – responses from other European economies and areas for collaboration.
Presentations will be followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A. The event will close with a look to the future from Ragne Low, senior member of the Scottish Government.
