Getting Serious About Net Zero
BEIS, 1 Queen Victoria Street, London
Tuesday 24 September 2019
9:45 - 17:00
Join colleagues from the energy industry, financial sector, policy community and academia at BIEE's London conference on September 24 to debate the implications of Net Zero for UK energy policy and help to decide: "What must we do now".
2018's IPCC special report on global warming of 1.5°C has put the achievement of 'net zero' emissions at centre stage for energy and climate policy around the world. How we can eliminate all (net) greenhouse gas emissions, and how quickly, is now a key focus, driving more intense efforts towards radical innovation, technologies and policies.
These issues will be at the heart of the debate, where delegates will hear from the Committee on Climate Change following its advice published on when and how the UK can reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and achieve net zero by 2050.
Confirmed speakers include:
- Julian Critchlow, DG Energy Transformation Group, Business Energy and Industrial Strategy
- Chris Stark, Chief Executive, The Committee on Climate Change
- Guy Newey, Strategy and Performance Director, Energy Systems Catapult
- Jo Coleman, UK Energy Transition Manager, Shell
- Alex Kazaglis, Principal, Vivid Economics
- Michael Grubb, Professor of Energy and Climate Change, UCL ISR
- Neil Morris, CEO, The Faraday Institution
- Tim Lord, Director, Clean Growth, Business Energy and Industrial Strategy
- Dr Charlie Wilson, Reader in Energy and Climate, UEA
