This event, hosted by ClimateXChange and the University of Edinburgh, will provide a neutral and balanced forum for debate amongst expert stakeholders, to discuss the scale and focus of impacts facing the Scottish energy system from Brexit. The distinguished Panel will address the key questions:

  • Which parts of the Scottish energy system are particularly vulnerable to Brexit-related uncertainty, and which are comparatively insulated?

  • How resilient are the technologies, infrastructures, supply chains, R&D programmes, and funding sources that are necessary to effect a transition to a low-carbon economy?

This Panel marks the end of a fellowship funded by ClimateXChange and the Scottish Government, on the topic of ‘Scotland and the European Energy Union’, carried out by Dr Ronan Bolton, Dr Peter Zeniewski and Dr Mark Winskel, University of Edinburgh. In November 2017 they released a report analysing some of the possible impacts from Brexit.
