Claire Coutinho, Secretary of State, Department of Energy Security and Net Zero, gives the keynote speech at our Energy Transitions Conference 2024. 

During her speech she discusses how the UK maintained its energy supplies following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and how the country is adapting to an era where energy supply can be weaponized. 

She outlines how a future system can supply cheap and secure energy, setting out the role of nuclear, wind, oil and gas in the energy transition. She also examines access to critical minerals, and the role of technology including carbon capture. 

She also covers investment in British energy, and how the UK can help developing nations with their own energy transitions.
