On 23 June, Britain will go to the polls in a referendum on whether to stay in, or leave, the EU. At this panel discussion, co-hosted with the UK Energy Research Centre and the UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources, experts and policy-makers will consider the implications of either scenario for the UK’s energy system.

At a time when the European Commission is developing proposals for an Energy Union, has the EU got the balance right on the energy trilemma in the first place? And what might the threats be to that balance of a vote either way? Even if the UK votes to remain, what kind of Europe do we want?

As, irrespective of the outcome of the referendum, the UK will still need to have some relationship with the Energy Union and the wider energy system(s) of the European mainland and of Ireland, the panel will also discuss what this relationship might look like.
