Decarbonising UK energy: effective technology and policy options for achieving a zero-carbon future

4 October 2017 09:00 - 6 October 2017 17:00, London, United Kingdom

The Paris Agreement saw governments agree to reduce global warming to “well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels”, meaning that global net greenhouse gas emission must be reduced to zero before 2100. Achieving the Paris Agreement goals, while maintaining energy security, are not yet widely understood. This meeting discuss the need for decarbonisation of the UK energy supply, the technology and policy options for achieving this, the consequences of doing so, and incentives that may be necessary.

This is a Royal Society Science+ meeting organised in partnership with the British Academy and Royal Academy of Engineering by Professor John Shepherd CBE FRS, Professor Corinne Le Quéré FRS, Professor Cameron Hepburn, Nick Winser CBE FREng and Professor Richard Parker CBE FREng.

The meeting will take place at The Royal Society, London.

This meeting is intended for researchers in relevant fields.
