Event description
What are the energy policies that will drive an independent UK to net zero while fuelling the economy?

About this Event

The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Energy Studies aims to inform the government of the day of the energy issues of the day. To mark its 40th Anniversary and the UK’s watershed year - post Brexit, post CoViD-19, and pre CoP26 and 2050 - PGES is launching an inquiry on the importance of energy in the context of UK as an independent nation. We are seeking views on the key policies required from those who supply, need or use energy. The inquiry asks fundamental questions across our activities, because energy is the vital resource. Without energy there is no economy.

This is the time to open the debate. Outside the EU, the UK is establishing policies now that will affect future generations. The ‘fourth industrial revolution’ has moved industry from mechanical to digital and a lifestyle revolution, accelerated by CoViD-19, is dramatically changing our energy footprint. Meanwhile the challenge of net zero has prompted local, regional and sectoral organisations to use their initiative, skills and resources to encourage place-based decarbonisation.This is a complex agenda. PGES will put practical policy suggestions for the coming year and beyond to ministers, MPs, peers and government departments. We are seeking input from across the economy and need your views.
