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 was required.
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.

A copy of the Energy Review document (218 pages: with Annexes A-F, but without the 9 supporting documents) can be downloaded from www.cambridgeenergy.com/files/energy_review_report.pdf (2,684kB) .

The supporting documents can be downloaded from www.dti.gov.uk/energy/review/ .

All future "energy related" meetings in Cambridge are posted at The Cambridge Network's events calendar.

Cambridge Energy Forum holds regular speaker meetings; we use a 2-part, disputation format.
