The economic rebound after the Covid-19 pandemic triggered a price spike for multiple commodities, including energy. The war in Ukraine has led to further increases in energy prices and security of supply concerns. The surge in energy prices is against the backdrop of the continuing transition to a net zero carbon energy system and a growing economy. Additionally, electricity security has come under the spotlight due to increasing demand from data centres which are forecast to account for nearly one quarter of electricity demand by 2030.
This conference will look at the drivers behind the rise in gas and electricity prices and examine the security of energy supply to the island and security of the electricity grid.
