Event Information

Interested in the Energy Transition and the future role you might play?
Join us for our very first Energy Transition virtual subscription events!

Over the next 3 months we will deliver an exciting programme of virtual events examining potential Energy Transition pathways in the UK. Practitioners and industry experts across the energy space will address the policies, technologies, challenges and visions that will pave the way to a low carbon economy via topical presentations and discussion.

What’s in it for you? Are you skilled for the future? What skills are transferable and what needs to be learned? What opportunities will emerge? Join associated small talk discussions to ask your burning questions or share your knowledge.

We will capture the debate and discussion in a ‘Points of View’ publication, which will be released to all subscribers following these events.

We invite professionals and stakeholders from across the energy sector, or simply those with an interest in the future of energy, to join us.
