Current± Briefings: Assessing the opportunities and ambition of the British energy security strategy

About this event

Against a backdrop of record high power prices and continued volatility exacerbated by the Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the British energy security strategy was released on 7 April. Designed as a way of addressing Britain’s energy independence, the strategy paves the way for more nuclear, offshore wind and solar.

But many in the energy sector have labelled the strategy a missed opportunity, criticising a lack of near-term action and focus on demand-side interventions. In our latest Current± Briefings webinar, we bring together a panel of industry experts to discuss the next steps required for Britain to meet its new renewable energy targets, how much storage will be needed to balance this, and how integral is the new FSO in ensuring all of these cogs fit together?
