Event description

Description

Energy systems are going through a period of fundamental change due to new technologies, energy economics, business models and changing social preferences. Much of the momentum for change, in most countries, is closer to the demand side and at the local distribution level, where the opportunities for taking a whole systems approach across electricity, heat and transport are easier to identify and act upon. Such an approach to system transformation is more aligned with the needs of people, for example encompassing ideas of 'taking back control' and is based on the principles of creating a system which is smarter, flexible and more integrated. To enable this to happen in Great Britain, a new approach to energy governance, based on new ideas, new institutions and new people is required.

The conference will explore these issues and put potential solutions on the table. IGov’s five principles for institutional reform (see here) will be explored: putting people first; local energy markets; access to data; system coordination; political stability, transparency and legitimacy; along with debate on how to fund change. The event will bring together insights from international representatives, seasoned observers and young ‘rising stars’; and will encourage discussion of the key findings of the 4 years research that has taken place under the IGov project: http://projects.exeter.ac.uk/igov/
