Responding to the Energy Crisis

Wednesday 19th October | Online

The UK is facing a major shock to our energy supply chain with soaring costs putting significant strains on our communities, businesses and infrastructure. Yet as with so many crises, these incredible challenges also bring the opportunity to accelerate new ideas and innovations and bring about long term change.

During the event, we will explore the dimensions of the current energy crisis and identify the opportunities for investors to be part of the solution, as we continue to move toward UK Net-Zero goals.
