Linklaters was proud to host Westminster Energy Forum’s session on ‘The UK’s Smart Power Transition’ held at its London office on 15 December 2017. Linklaters’ Head of Renewables, John Pickett opened the first of two sessions covering the UK’s move to integrated sustainable energy and transport.

This session stems from fundamental changes which are occurring in the energy market. Interconnection, storage, and demand flexibility have the potential to displace part of the need for new generating capacity, to save money for businesses and domestic consumers and help the UK meet its climate reduction targets. Together, these three infrastructure innovations have the potential to create a leaner, more efficient electricity system at the cutting edge of global technology.

The Westminster Energy Forum (WEF) is an independent UK industry association whose remit is: "To convene senior practitioners from across the UK energy and climate sector in order to help identify, and to evaluate, the key strategic issues and risks that may affect the design and delivery of UK policy and energy infrastructure." WEF operates as a mutual trusted entity to monitor emerging and systemic challenges to the UK energy sector, working across sector silos in the overall national interest.
