Our Comment

"A powerful and lucid presenter, Angela is well placed to analyse the challenges facing the UK's energy sector, and its multinational energy companies: what will be the impact of new regulation? How can the UK create the right balance between security, pricing and climate protection? What lessons can other countries learn from the UK's experience of energy privatisation and regulation?"
