The IGov Final conference: Energy Governance- new ideas, new institutions, new people will take place on 6 December at British Academy, London, SW1Y 5AG. As part of the event we want to identify and promote a cohort of ‘rising stars’ of the energy system, by which we mean: dynamic early-career individuals; new entrants to the energy market; and people promoting innovative ideas and approaches to creating a sustainable, affordable and secure energy system. They could be from academia, industry, Government and regulation, NGOs, communities, etc. from the UK or elsewhere.

Jeremy Corbyn has reiterated his commitment to making action on climate change one of his top priorities as Labour leader, sketching out plans to drastically increase investment in low carbon infrastructure. Setting out his vision of “the socialism of the 21st century” in his address to the Labour Party Conference in Liverpool, Corbyn said that while “the Tories are the party of cuts and short-termism, Labour is the party of investing for the future”. “I am not content with accepting second-class broadband, not content with creaking railways, not content with seeing the US and Germany investing in cutting-edge and green technologies, while Britain lags behind,” he said, adding that Labour’s proposed National Investment Bank would invest to get “our broadband, our railways, our housing and our energy infrastructure up to scratch”.
