As the cost of energy and energy security concerns increase in the UK, our panel will consider the role energy plays in the economic development of the world’s major emerging economies and other developing countries. The decisions they make about how to develop secure, clean and affordable energy will determine future levels of investment, energy consumption and fuel choices globally.
