The world faces a significant challenge in sustaining supply from traditional sources of energy while developing the alternatives that will achieve a low carbon economy. The need for this transition now comes at a time of recession with limited access to capital. Lack of investment today may only increase concerns for secure supplies of energy in the future. This seminar will combine the challenges this presents for policymaking and regulation with a look at the practicalities businesses need to make it happen.
