- Time: 14:00 - 16:30
- Location: Conference Auditorium 2, University of Leeds
Chris Stark, Chief Executive of the UK Committee on Climate Change, will join us at the University of Leeds to explore the energy implications of the Government’s new target for net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
Achieving this ambitious target demands fundamental changes to the way that energy is generated, distributed and used. This will require not only new technologies, but also new policies, governance, business and finance models, and an understanding of their wider impacts on our economy and society.
Hosted by Energy Leeds and the Priestley International Centre for Climate, this event will bring together key stakeholders from academia, industry, government and civil society to discuss the range of solutions available and what further research is needed to deliver these.
Following a keynote presentation from Chris Stark there will be a panel discussion featuring high level representatives from across the sector, with the opportunity for in-depth discussions with the audience.
A drinks reception will conclude the afternoon.
