The 9th Annual Meeting of LCS-RNet was held in Warwick University, UK on 12 – 13 September, 2017 back to back with the 2017 UKERC annual academic conference which explored the implications of international trends within these themes for UK energy policy and research.
The conference gathered around 200 participants during two days, focused on policy challenges and breakthroughs regarding “Clean growth and innovation“.
This year, we focused on three themes that reflect current debates in international climate change and energy policy, against the backdrop of recent political changes and uncertainties in Europe and the United States. In particular, focused on three main themes in below:
- Innovation: technology, resource productivity and industrial policy.
- Global energy markets and forms of carbon pricing.
- Energy access and low carbon development.
The audience was actively engaged with the speakers during Q&A sessions after each presentation, which allowed productive debates and strengthened understanding of cross-cutting issues. Finally, the conference offered the opportunity to identify collaboration opportunities between participants, notably in the field of policy research.
The full programme of sessions and speakers is also available on the UKERC website.
