The event itself

The aim of the event will be to enhance the understanding of how we power the country and the Birmingham City region, both today and in the future.

The discussion will be hosted by the Department of Energy and Climate Change’s Chief Scientific Adviser, David MacKay and climate change author, Mark Lynas. It will highlight the scale of the energy challenge we face, how we can tackle it and what opportunities we have for change.

How we make and use energy is one of the most urgent issues facing the UK, impacting on our economy, the bills we pay and the environment we live in. This is a unique opportunity to participate with government in this important debate, network with leaders from across the region and discuss some practical steps to contribute to its solution.
