Exchanging Ideas: Energy Policy

Thursday 13 July 2017, at 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Please join the National Assembly for Wales Research Service & the Learned Society of Wales’ seminar on the future of Energy Policy with our panel of experts:

  • Dr Nina Skorupska, UK Renewable Energy Association
  • Professor Andrew Barron, Swansea University
  • Professor Max Munday, Cardiff University
  • Professor Hywel Thomas, Cardiff University

The seminar will consider the feasibility of, and challenges around, aiming to meet Wales’ energy needs from renewables.

Key questions include:

  • How ambitious should the Welsh Government be in defining the role of renewables in Wales’ future energy mix?
  • What are what are the main challenges facing the sector and is there a need for greater certainty around funding and policy?
  • Is there is a case for alternative energy sources (e.g. small modular nuclear reactors and/or unconventional gases) to play a role in Wales’ future energy mix?
  • Are any changes to existing distribution and supply networks required to enable supply and demand matching?
