Getting Serious About Net Zero
BEIS, 1 Queen Victoria Street, London
Tuesday 24 September 2019
9:45 - 17:00  

Join colleagues from the energy industry, financial sector, policy community and academia at BIEE's London conference on September 24 to debate the implications of Net Zero for UK energy policy and help to decide: "What we must do now".

British Institute of Energy Economics

2018's IPCC special report on global warming of 1.5°C has put the achievement of 'Net Zero' emissions at centre stage for energy and climate policy around the world. How we can eliminate all (net) greenhouse gas emissions, and how quickly, is now the key focus, driving more intense efforts towards radical innovation, technologies and policies.

These issues are at the heart of the debate. Delegates will hear from the Committee on Climate Change following its advice published on when and how the UK can reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and achieve Net Zero by 2050.
