Event description

Description

Annual Conference 2017 - The Labour Party


For 150 years, our energy supply has come from big, centralised sources – power stations using coal, gas, nuclear energy, and now wind farms and solar. But many old stations are closing and pressures on the national grid are increasing, especially during periods of spikes in demand. A new way of structuring energy supply could offer the key to energy affordability, security and a low-carbon future. Big energy consumers such as hospitals and schools can become small-scale energy producers, with solar panels, small wind power systems, combined heat and power, and back-up generators for times of high demand. The Labour Party has advocated a set of energy policies that pioneer this new approach.


Join Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, to find out how local authorities, city regions, central government and the private sector can work together to make it a reality.

Will Dunn - New Statesman Special Projects Editor


Speakers:

Rebecca Long Bailey MP - Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

Hywel Lloyd - Associate Director for Environment, Housing & Infrastructure, IPPR
