Global Energy Policy Challenges, Innovation and the Catapult
The global politics of energy and the environment are high on the agenda for all economies, evidenced by the recent deal at the climate change summit in Paris where nearly 200 countries took part in negotiations to limit the rise in global temperatures.
But can the UK honour this commitment? In his lecture, Nick Winser will review the UK’s energy policy and discuss the recent shift in focus towards energy innovation to meet the 2050 climate and energy targets.
The lecture will go on to look at how the Energy Systems Catapult, which is part of a network of Catapults, will help to deliver the UK’s objectives for the transformation of UK and global energy systems (covering electricity, heat and combustible gases).
