Event Details

The UK Government’s Energy White Paper, published on 14 December 2020, sets out a series of historic, cross-sector commitments designed to power the UK’s transition to a net zero future.

Beginning on 31 March, join our legal experts for a free-to-attend series of virtual events bringing together speakers from industry, academia and government to discuss the transition to net zero and the impact of the ‘Green Industrial Revolution’ across the UK economy.

Our first event in the series, Fit for Revolution?, takes place on Wednesday 31 March 2021. Our panellists will discuss how our existing institutions will need to evolve to support the ‘Green Industrial Revolution’.

To realise the ambition of a ‘Green Industrial Revolution’ our existing institutions need to think and act differently, so how will they do so? Chaired by Liz McRobb, a Partner from our energy and natural resources team, we invite you to put your questions to our panel, which will comprise Dermot NolanDirector at Fingleton and former CEO at Ofgem, Nick Fincham, Director at Skylight Consulting and Chair of the Regulatory Policy Institute, and Gordon Downie, a Partner from our regulation and markets team.

In discussing these fundamental institutional challenges, we will aim to cover the following areas:

  • use of markets to deliver climate policy goals;
  • political and legal accountability; and
  • consumer participation and engagement.


(Wednesday) 10:00 am - 11:00 am BST
