BIEE Climate and Energy Seminar  -  UK's Industrial Energy Strategy


Following the launch by the UK government of a Green Paper and consultation in January 2017, BEIS has been developing the key elements of the UK’s Industrial Strategy which is expected to be announced later this year. We will hear perspectives from two speakers on this area, one from the government department responsible for shaping the energy pillar and the other from an economist with experience of some of the challenges governments typically face in designing such strategies.
