17:00 - 18:00, Wednesday 29 April 2020

 Houses of Parliament, Room tbc

Michael Lewis became E.ON UK Chief Executive Officer (CEO) in 2017, having worked at the company, first as Powergen and then E.ON, for more than 25 years. For over a decade he has held senior leadership roles within the E.ON group, including Managing Director for Europe, COO, and CEO of E.ON Climate and Renewables and was employee number one when E.ON’s global renewables business was set up.

In this special guest lecture, Michael will give a candid assessment of life leading a large energy supplier in the age of net zero. Reflecting on his own experience and personal journey, Michael will discuss the current energy landscape in the UK, including the opportunities and challenges facing the energy sector today, the importance of the energy retail sector in reaching net zero and how he thinks the sector can best help government deliver on its promises.

As with all PRASEG guest lectures, this will be an intimate discussion in the House of Commons, held under Chatham House rule. Following Michael’s opening remarks, there will be ample opportunity for MPs and Peers to ask questions. The event is also open for PRASEG Supporters to attend, although please note that the meeting will take place in one of the smaller-capacity Committee Rooms and therefore attendance is by invitation only on a first-come-first-served basis. To discuss the event further, please contact the PRASEG Secretariat directly.
