Supporting UK Energy Security Strategy

Since 2004 Westminster Energy has provided a trusted environment for Government, industry and other key stakeholders to evaluate the factors that affect our long term UK energy security, and the effectiveness of the strategies and policies underpinning it. By working across the sector silos Westminster Energy examines common risk factors, and supports the sharing of ideas and analysis among the participants. Westminster Energy operates as an industry association that does not lobby on behalf of any particular sector but which works to convene all the key players  - public, private and NGO - in a common interest.

At the core of its programme Westminster Energy delivers an annual cycle of nine high level seminars that are specifically designed to cover the six policy pillars underpinning the energy security strategy over the course of each political year, namely:

  •    Resilience to system & network shocks
  •    Energy efficiency measures to lower UK exposure to energy market risks
  •    Maximising economic production of UK oil and gas reserves
  •    Working to improve the reliability of global energy markets
  •    Reliable and diverse networks for reliable delivery of energy supplies
  •    Decarbonising supplies to reduce our dependence on international fossil fuels

The outputs from these sessions are fed back in to inform subsequent elements of the programme and related risk analysis. This helps us to clarify private discussions with the key political and industry and decision makers, and to increase awareness of cross-sectoral challenges and potential solutions.
