Roundtable: The Future of Energy

Roundtable: The Future of Energy

12th June 2018
2 Hours

This roundtable will focus on the future of energy in the UK. This will examine how the production, distribution and provision of energy could and should develop in the UK in the coming years and decades.

This will include:

• The move from a centralised system of energy generation and distribution to a distributed and decentralised energy system.

• Alternative forms of ownership in the energy market such as community ownership of renewables, municipal and local authority energy ventures and nationalisation.

• How to maintain economic fairness and energy security while moving to a low carbon energy system.
