Jan 2015. Evidence to the House of Lords on the resilience of the electricity grid to a changing climate

Video/YouTube: Anderson gives evidence on the ‘resilience of the UK’s Electricity network to a changing climate’, both in terms of low carbon energy supply and changes in energy demand.

The evidence is based, in part, on the research project Resilient Electricity Networks for Great Britain (RESNET); a collaboration between Manchester and Newcastle Universities and the National Grid. Amongst others, the House of Lords committee included reputable scientists, for example Martin Rees and Robert Winston, renown climate sceptic and previous Chair of Northern Rock, Mat Ridley, and climate sceptic/denier William Wade.
