About the event

This discussion will include a review of the current progress in decarbonising the heat and transport sectors, the impact of European regulations, directives and targets for the period up to 2030, and the recently published draft National Energy and Climate Plan. It will examine the challenges for both heat and transport as the most difficult sectors to decarbonise and examine currently and potential policy options. The role and opportunities for the engineering sector in the decarbonisation will also be discussed.
