Evidence in energy policy-making

You can access a recording of this event here.

On 26 January, we welcome Will McDowall (University College London) to SKAPE as part of our seminar series.

Will’s talk will consider what the UK can learn from overseas energy policies. The discussion will cover his recent work on evidence in energy policy-making, which compares UK energy policy to approaches taken by Germany, France, the Netherlands and Canada. You can learn more about the report that the talk builds on by visiting the below blog, where you will also find links to the full report:
