Energy revolution: what could change the energy sector?

24 March 2016

The Energy and Climate Change Committee launches an inquiry exploring what disruptive technologies and innovation could transform the future energy sector.

What we want to know

As a first step in this inquiry, the Energy and Climate Change Committee is seeking answers to a single question:

"Which innovations have the greatest potential to revolutionise energy markets, and why?"

Please refer to no more than 3. We will look at your ideas and shortlist a few to look at in more detail.

Send us a submission

For this inquiry, the Committee is seeking—and encourages—both written submissions (of up to 1,000 words) and short video submissions (of up to 30 seconds). This is an opportunity for you to tell us, and even to show us, the innovations that could transform the energy sector. Your enthusiasm and visions for an Energy Revolution will help shape the direction of the Committee’s work.

To send a video submission: Share it with us on Twitter (our handle is @CommonsECC) with the inquiry hashtag #NewEnergyTech.

The deadline for submissions is Tuesday 3 May 2016.
