The New Role of Fossil Fuels in the Diverse Energy Landscape of the 21st Century

The role of fossil fuels in the world’s energy landscape is changing. This change is particularly important in the UK owing to its position as an island nation characterised by an increasing energy demand, relatively small levels of energy interconnection with mainland Europe, dwindling installed fossil-based generating capacity and ambitious goals to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.

This 1-day meeting aims to provoke discussion on how the changing energy landscape will affect the use of and services provided by fossil fuels in the UK’s energy system over the course of this century.
