‘Energy security is now national security’, OEUK to tell industry leaders at London Business Breakfast

30 June 2022

Leaders in the energy industry will come together to discuss the UK’s energy security as the country shifts to a low carbon economy at an event hosted by Offshore Energies UK (OEUK) in London next week. 

Sponsored by Pinsent Masons LLP, the Business Breakfast will bring together an exciting range of government and industry speakers to set out their aspirations for the transition and turn it into an advantage – making the UK a centre of low-carbon excellence and a blueprint for decarbonisation. 

The ‘Secure Energy Supplies during the Transition to Net Zero’ event will be held from 8 am to 10 am on July 5 at Pinsent Masons LLP, Earl Street, London. 

OEUK Energy Policy Manager Will Webster said: 

“Energy security has been bumped to the top of the agenda in recent months as the energy price crisis continues, worsened by the tragic events in Ukraine.  

“The UK offshore energy industry has a big role to play in providing secure and reliable supplies of fuel and power to millions across the UK. In future, this will be increasingly with cleaner energies as well as the oil and gas we continue to rely on today.  

“The government also discussed proposed legislative plans to support the journey to net zero, supported by the offshore industry, which plans to spend some £250 billion over the next 10 years in continued domestic oil and gas production as well as renewables and carbon cutting technologies.” 

Speakers and panellists will include: 

Antony Miller, Head of CCUS Transport & Storage Delivery, BEIS 
Carolyn Campbell, Deputy Head, Hydrogen and Industrial CCUS Business Models & Projects, BEIS 
Richard Walsh MCIPR, Head of External Affairs, Cadent 
Bruce McLeod, Partner, Pinsent Masons LLP 
Mike Tholen, Sustainability Director, OEUK 
Will Webster, Energy Policy Manager, OEUK
