  • Tuesday 20th October 2020
  • 10-11.30am
  • Zoom Online

The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) has advised that delivering the UK’s net-zero economy demands bold and brave policy developments. Many national plans and policies still ‘lack a basic acknowledgement of long term climate change’, or make a passing mention but have no associated actions to reduce risk. This includes aspects of agriculture, the natural environment, health, other infrastructure sectors and business.

This session is open to all and invites speakers from academia to discuss the ways in which research can inform policy, and why policy, regulation and markets are important for Smart Local Energy Systems.


There will be the opportunity for questions and discussion following on from the presentations.
