:event description

How we make and use energy is one of the most urgent issues facing the UK, impacting on our economy, the bills we pay and the environment we live in.

The British Energy Challenge, hosted by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and Greater Manchester Combined Authority’s Low Carbon Hub aims to enhance understanding of this issue by looking at how we power the country and Greater Manchester, both today and in the future. The discussion will be led by DECC’s Chief Scientific Adviser David MacKay and climate change author Mark Lynas.

Using a highly interactive format, the audience will explore the different ways the UK can move towards a low-carbon economy. This is a unique opportunity to participate in an incredibly important debate, network with leaders from across the region and discuss some steps to contribute to its solution.

Before the discussion, you will also be able to visit our exciting energy exhibition, which will provide you with a chance to engage with a range of leading organisations in the energy sphere, both local and national. The exhibition will take you on an energy journey exploring:

  • The Energy challenge – why does the UK energy system need to change?
  • The Economic opportunity – spotlight on growth, innovation and jobs
  • Consumer help – what action can you take to cut energy use and pay less?

12:30-13:30: Exhibition and networking including sandwich lunch
