    Aims and Agenda

    Aims and Agenda Aims of the Roundtable This roundtable will explore reforming energy governance to support the shift to a Net Zero economy. The transformation to achieve Net Zero within the next thirty years will likely require substantial changes to the governance of the UK’s energy system. In recent years, significant work has been undertaken by organisations such as Energy Systems Catapult / IET (through the Future Power Systems Architecture (FPSA) work) and the IGov project at the University of Exeter. The Government is currently consulting on a new governance regime for the set of

    New Thinking: Looking at the NIC Regulatory Review

    Looking at the NIC Regulatory Review Catherine Mitchell – IGov Team, 22nd October, 2019   The NIC recently published its conclusions for its Regulatory Review. The EPG submitted evidence to the Review, and was also a member of the Challenge Panel. The Review explored whether the telecom, water and energy regulatory systems are able to deal with the current key challenges they face.  It was therefore a high level Review of UK Regulation, rather than a review of the details of each regulatory system. Overall, IGov is pretty pleased with the NIC outcomes. The Report

We are an energy group, and as such our comments are likely to be most relevant to energy regulation. Ultimately, we argue that it is Government which has to take responsibility for GB energy policy, and the way

    Submission: Environmental Audit Committee Inquiry into Net Zero Government

    Environmental Audit Committee Inquiry into Net Zero Government Energy Policy Group, University of Exeter Supplementary note from Dr Rebecca Willis, Research Fellow   1. Overall government framework for net-zero Accountability and responsibility for net-zero: As we discussed, the UK’s Climate Change Act is world-leading, in setting a long-term target – now net-zero – and interim five-yearly budgets, overseen by the Committee on Climate Change. However, beyond the top-level responsibility held by BEIS, it is not clear who is responsible for delivering these targets. Many Departments and Agencies of government make reference to decarbonisation, but this

    New Thinking: Climate Emergency Declarations Accelerating Decarbonisation?

    Climate Emergency Declarations Accelerating Decarbonisation? What 249 UK examples can tell us. Calum Harvey-Scholes, IGov Team 20th September 2019 Introduction Following the IPCC 1.5oC Special Report in October 2018, it is clearer than ever that we need to accelerate decarbonisation policy at every level to limit global heating. We know that more than half of all anthropogenic carbon emissions have occurred in the past 30 years, since the establishment of the IPCC, and global carbon emissions are still climbing every year. The IPCC report, the school climate strikes, Extinction Rebellion, and Climate Change: The Facts
