The PM’s 10-point plan: Further thoughts from our Energy Spectrum webinar

In our regular Energy Spectrum webinar on Tuesday 24 November, Senior Writer Nick Palmer and Head of Relationship Development Robert Buckley discussed the government’s 10-point plan for a green industrial revolution. They considered what has led to this point, what is in the plan, what the reaction was to it and what the announcements mean for the sector. They are looking forward to the other important policy documents coming up over the next few months. 

Fresh from last week’s 10-Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution and the 2021 CFD auction plans, the Treasury issued its Spending Review 2020 alongside the much-anticipated National Infrastructure Strategy (NIS). Robert Buckley gives his initial thoughts on the Spending Review.
