Here, you can find Prospect‘s new report The future of energy. A publication which examines the future of energy through the prism of some of the technologies and business models that are driving it forward.

There are those at the heart of energy innovation who would prefer it if politicians got out of the way and let the market decide what to do. In this supplement, Ed Davey the former Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, argues that those innovators are fundamentally wrong.

Register your interest in attending the official launch of “The Future of Energy”  

Speakers will include Ed Davey, Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Home Affairs, Laura Sandys, CEO of Challenging Ideas, and Sinead Lynch, UK Country Chair at Royal Dutch Shell.
