In this podcast, Paul Butcher, our Director of Public Policy, looks at:

  • the unprecedented nature of the current situation for natural gas, coal and electricity
  • the consequences we are seeing for industry and consumers
  • what caused the crisis, including:
    • the ‘series of unfortunate events’
    • the surprising consequences of the pandemic and new ways of working
    • geopolitics.

The discussion ends with what Paul argues is the main underlying cause that has allowed the other factors to be decisive: policymakers have left us in energy limbo rather than energy transition. In the second episode, out soon, discussion will turn to the Global energy crisis from a UK perspective.
