In the third session of our Energy Academy autumn series, partners Keith Patterson and Sarah-Jane McArthur are joined by Isabella van Green from our renewable energy team to discuss the implications of COP26 for energy policy, the energy transition and Scotland.

COP26 is the most important climate change conference ever to be held. At Paris, the countries of the world agreed a non-binding target to limit global warming to 1.5C. 

At Glasgow, the challenge is to turn those targets into binding commitments. Commitments mean designing and implementing a policy framework that creates new market signals to businesses to invest in the technologies and infrastructure of the future. 

In this session, we discussed the emerging policy framework and its implications, focussing on the energy sector.
