4th Annual Lecture of the Energy Law Institute

25 October 2018

Time: 5:15 - 8:00pm

The Energy Law Institute of the Centre for Commercial Law Studies at Queen Mary University of London is pleased to announce details of its 4th Annual Lecture, sponsored by Clifford Chance.

Sir Richard Friend, Cavendish Professor of Physics at the University of Cambridge, will present a lecture entitled: Energy - the Scientific Limits

The economics of the generation, storage and use of energy have been changing very quickly in the past decade. The price for renewable generation from solar and wind, to take an example, has fallen far faster than even the optimists had predicted. Will these trends continue? Is there a Moore’s Law for energy? How close are we to operating at the limits set by the laws of science? The answers to these questions are technology specific, but in several very large sectors, there are real opportunities to do much better.

The lecture and Q&A session will be chaired by Sir David King, former permanent Special Representative for Climate Change.
