Decentralised & Devolved: Transforming UK Energy
Wednesday 6th July, 13.30-17.30
Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), 61 Whitehall, London, SW1A 2ET

PRASEG's annual conference is a key event on the energy policy calendar bringing together senior players across the sustainable energy sector.

The 2016 Conference focused on the wide range of innovative energy projects happening at regional, local authority and community level; the new technologies that are enabling this transition; how these are shaping the UK’s future energy landscape and how they fit in with the government’s devolution agenda and wider energy and climate policy goals.
