Event Summary:

IPFA UK: London: The Future of the UK Energy Mix


The UK’s energy system continues to post headline-grabbing figures. In 2018, carbon emissions dropped by 39% from 1990 levels – lowest since 1888, when Tower Bridge was being built in London. In May 2019, the system was operating for two weeks without relying on coal – for the first time since industrial revolution.

The pace of change has been tremendous, and more disruption will follow. As renewable costs continue to decline, speculation abounds of zero-subsidy wind and solar future. Retirement of ageing nuclear assets over the next decade highlights questions around the future of nuclear power. Meanwhile, electrification of transport and heating is ramping up and poses additional challenges to the energy system operation.

Join us for a discussion on how these trends will shape the UK energy infrastructure assets and infrastructure investments in the years to come.
