In a connected world, supply chains are tested to their fullest when major global events and geopolitical shifts occur. Covid and the illegal war in Ukraine have had serious effects both here in the UK and around the world.
Russia’s war has shone a strong light on the need to secure Britain’s future energy supplies to power our businesses, homes, and transport – and to provide this energy in a greener and more affordable form that is compatible with our transition to net zero.
Energy Security and Green Infrastructure Week (6/10 November 2023) is aligned with the government’s new Department for Energy Security and Net Zero and will highlight both our world-class skills and services in research, science & engineering, and recognise the technologies already moving at pace to deliver clean, green, and resilient energy.
Grant Shapps, Energy Security and Net Zero Secretary, said “…by accelerating plans to diversify, decarbonise and domesticate our energy supplies, we will take back power. Putin’s invasion of Ukraine demonstrated something that the UK already appreciated – fossil fuels are not the future”.
Energy Security and Green Infrastructure Week will support and connect all the stakeholders required to build the net zero future we need.
