CIBSE Annual Lecture 2012: How secure is GB's electricity & gas supply

CIBSE Annual Lecture 2012: How secure is GB's electricity & gas supply

The 2012 CIBSE Annual Lecture on 7 November was presented by Alistair Buchanan CBE, Chief Executive of the Office of the Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem), addressing the issue of energy supply and security.

In 2009 Ofgem published Project Discovery - the headlines looking out to 2020 were dramatic: prices would rise, carbon targets would be hard to achieve and our secure supply of electricity might be at risk. In 2012 Ofgem was invited by Government to review both the electricity and gas markets to 2016 and beyond respectively. In his lecture, Alistair Buchanan (Ofgem) focuses on the unique challenges facing Great Britain and the Goverment's responses so far.
