An Audience with Guy Newey

Energy Systems Catapult, Birmingham, B4 6BS

3rd Mar 2020



    We will be spending a morning with Guy Newey, policy expert and current Strategy and Performance Director at the Energy Systems Catapult (and former Special Adviser to Energy Secretary Amber Rudd) who has some fascinating insights to share.

    An informal session is planned with some lively conversation among industry experts with lots of opportunity for questions and interaction.

    Find out more about:

    • How we can get to net zero
    • The new Governments energy portfolio 
    • How Whitehall works from a previous insider 

    It promises to be time well spent gaining practical takeaways to guide decision making around net zero policy, the decarbonisation agenda, the workings of Whitehall and the Energy Systems Catapult.

    What’s in store?

    The session will kick off at 10.30. David Parkin, Director at Progressive Energy will manage proceedings leading the conversation. Mike Foster, EUA Chief Executive will interview Guy on his experience of Whitehall. There will be a mid-morning networking break then finish with a networking lunch.
