In vs Out: An Energy Perspective

By Editor on 4th May 2016
Date and Time: 
Wednesday, May 25, 2016 - 16:30 to 18:30

London

In this panel discussion, experts and policy-makers will consider the implications for the UK’s energy system of either staying in or leaving the EU. At a time when the European Commission is developing proposals for the Energy Union, has the EU got the balance right on the energy trilemma in the first place?  And what might the threats be to that balance of a vote either way?  Even if the UK votes to remain, what kind of Europe do we want?

At this event, hosted by the ESRC’s The UK in a Changing Europe (UKiCE) Initiative, leading practitioners will debate the findings of a landmark independent report on the implications of a Brexit for the UK’s environment. 

The EU has had a profound impact upon UK environmental policy and ‘Brexit’ raises the prospect of considerable change in the future.  This ESRC funded report addresses the need for clear, balanced and systematic evidence on the implications of EU membership for the UK’s environment.
