Panel Debate: How disruptive will Brexit be to Scotland's Energy Strategy?

ClimateXChange and the University of Edinburgh are pleased to host a distinguished set of speakers from government, industry, academia and law.

The Panel will share their views about the potential risks and uncertainties facing the Scottish energy system after the UK's departure from the European Union, addressing the key questions:

  • Which parts of the Scottish energy system are particularly vulnerable to Brexit-related uncertainty, and which are comparatively insulated?
  • How resilient are the technologies, infrastructures, supply chains, and funding sources that Scotland and the UK rely upon to effect a transition to a low-carbon economy?
