Going Back to the Future - how lessons from the past will shape our energy future

Season 2, Episode 1,  Jun 25, 2020, 02:35 PM

In this edition of the Future of Business Energy podcast, nBS takes a look back to a project it did with the London School of Economics in 2011 – The Future Report - where it modelled four energy scenarios out to 2020.

We're now in 2020, so how close were the predictions? What has been the impact of Covid-19 and Brexit on the sector? And what needs to happen as we all work towards net-zero by 2050?

We’ve spoken to the author of the original report – Professor Sam Fankhauser - as well as Arjan Geveke, Assistant Director of Energy Policy, Energy Intensive Industries team at the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy; Robert Buckley, head of retail and relationship development at Cornwall Insight, and Ben Spry, head of risk management at npower Business Solutions, Energy HQ - to find out what the sector can expect in the short, medium and long term – and what this means for businesses.
