Against a backdrop of record high power prices and continued volatility exacerbated by the Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the British energy security strategy was released on 7 April.
It is designed as a way of addressing Britain’s energy independence, and paves the way for more nuclear, offshore wind and solar.
But many in the energy sector have labelled the strategy a missed opportunity, criticising a lack of near-term action and focus on demand-side interventions.
In response to the strategy, Current± is running a snap webinar at 10am BST 20 April 2022 to discuss exactly what the opportunities it has created are.
Bringing together a panel of industry experts that includes Modo Energy’s head of research Alex Done, IPPR’s associate director for energy, climate, housing and infrastructure Luke Murphy and EnergyUK’s deputy director of policy Charles Wood, the session will focus on key questions like:
- What are the next steps required for Britain to meet its new renewable energy targets?
- How much storage will be needed to balance this?
- How integral is the new FSO in ensuring all of these cogs fit together?
The session will be the latest in our Current± Briefings series, following on from a recent webinars on the impact the energy crisis having on the Capacity Market, the potential of V2G and how long Dynamic Containment can remain a hard hitter.
The Current± Briefings: Assessing the opportunities and ambition of the British energy security strategy will take place at 10am BST, on 20 April 2022. To register for the event, click here.
