Can we ever be 100% renewable? So near, yet so-lar…
With an ever-growing global population and the increasing threat of climate change, the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy is more important than ever.

In this discussion a world-class panel of experts will highlight:

* The UK’s position in the global energy community.

* What technological innovation and political action needs to be made?

* How achievable is this and what impact can we have as individuals?

We invite you to join us to this interdisciplinary debate as we discuss the challenges and opportunities ahead.
