UK Energy Review - Breakfast Discussion 14 July 2006
07:45 for 08:00
Sir David King KB ScD FRS (Chief
Scientific Advisor to H.M. Government and Head of the
Office of Science and Technology) introduced the
issues as he saw them for about 40 minutes.
We then explored the conclusions and implications of
the UK Government’s Energy Review through a facilitated
debate among an audience of practitioners and experts
in the energy field, where we:
- highlighted important areas of the document,
- corrected popular misconceptions,
- tested the review’s conclusions,
- explored the potential for individual carbon allowances.
The Chatham House Rule was applied.
A light breakfast was provided. Prior registration
This event was full.
Paid-up members had priority and we had people waiting outside to get in, in case of no-shows.
Very few non-members were able to get in.
