On Wednesday 12th June, PRASEG and the APPG for Artificial Intelligence (APPG AI) convened a breakfast meeting to discuss Artificial Intelligence, Energy and Climate and the case for the UK to establish a global Centre to help unlock the opportunities that AI could deliver for the energy and climate sectors, both in the UK and internationally.

The UK has established a global leadership position on AI and there are a wide range of UK start-ups, businesses and research organisations who have called for a new international institution to help support and promote the development of AI for energy and climate applications.

Attendees at the breakfast heard from Peter Clutton-Brock (Hinge), Jack Kelly (ex-Google DeepMind) and Paul Massara (ex-CEO N-Power), who have recently been working alongside officials from BEIS, FCO and HMT to develop the concept of an International Centre for AI, Energy and Climate. They introduced the topic and opportunities on offer and presented their vision for a new world-leading institution to be opened in the UK.

Hosted by PRASEG Chairman, James Heappey MP, and APPG AI Co-Chair Stephen Metcalfe MP, the breakfast took place in Parliament.
