Forthcoming events

The Westminster Energy, Environment & Transport Forum aims to provide the premier environment for policymakers in Parliament, Whitehall and government agencies to engage with key stakeholders in timely discussion on public policy relating to energy and transport policy, and the environment. These include businesses operating in the energy, environment and transport sectors, their suppliers and advisors; and representatives of local authorities and interest groups; along with academics, commentators, and members of the reporting press.

In planning its programme of events, the Forum regularly consults Parliamentarians, senior government officials, regulators, industry representatives, charities and action groups, professional bodies and academics, local government and others.

The Westminster Energy, Environment & Transport Forum is completely impartial and has no policy agenda of its own. Whilst we are grateful for the support and advice on themes that we receive from sponsors, all editorial decisions remain with the Forum in order to maintain impartiality.

Should you have any booking queries, please email sue.harris@westminsterforumprojects.co.uk.
