EU-UK Energy Security: Perceptions and Realities

20 September 2011 - 10:30am to 6:30pm

Chatham House, London



In recent years the UK has gone from being a net exporter to a net importer of energy. Along with other EU member states, it faces considerable challenges in meeting stringent carbon reduction targets whilst maintaining security of energy supply within the framework of a liberalised market. In this context, this workshop will discuss concerns regarding energy and energy security in Britain, looking in particular at how these challenges are affected by developments in Europe.

The outcomes of the discussion will form part of the Energy Security in a Multipolar World (ESMW) research cluster, a hub hosted by the Universities of Exeter and Sussex which brings together three overlapping disciplinary research areas - energy policy, international relations and supply chains - to examine issues around global energy infrastructure and security.

Attendance for this event is by invitation only.
