Ministerial Address followed by Fuel Poverty and Climate Change
Ministerial Address by Rt Hon Kwasi Kwarteng MP, Minister of State for Business, Energy and Clean Growth
Seminar: Fuel Poverty and Climate Change:
The UK’s commitment to achieving Net Zero carbon emissions by 2050 presents a huge opportunity to end fuel poverty. To achieve this fairness and equity need to be hardwired into policies designed to tackle climate change, but what does this look like and how do we do it? Our panel explores some of these issues including the tensions, challenges and pitfalls; possible models; and examples of where people are getting it right.
