LightWorks

Dr. Michael Grubb

  • Professor, International Energy and Climate Change
  • University College London
  • Senior Advisor to the UK Energy Regulator Ofgem

What have we earned after several decades of research and policy attempting to address the entwined issues of energy, climate change and sustainable development? In this talk, Professor Grubb will outline lessons on the three corresponding pillars of policy and explain in particular why they are complementary, not competing, and why only packages spanning all three are credible, economically efficient and environmentally effective – and hence, politically stable. He will also touch on the international dimensions, in which each pillar would raise different aspects of international cooperation.
