COP21 and the post-Paris Energy Transition
Venue: Keighton Auditorium, University Park Campus, Nottingham University
I was fortunate to be commissioned to photograph the above lecture by Sir David King, it’s a real bonus when I get to work and listen to a learned speaker on such a fascinating subject.
The Foreign Secretary appointed Sir David King as his new permanent Special Representative for Climate Change in 2013. Sir David was previously the Government’s Chief Scientific Advisor from 2000-2007 during which time he raised awareness of the need for governments to act on climate change and was instrumental in creating the Energy Technologies Institute. Sir David was knighted in 2003 in recognition of his efforts in the climate change debate. He plays a key role in spearheading Mission Innovation, launched during the COP21 Climate Conference along with Bill Gates and world leaders, aiming to unite public and private stakeholders to solve climate change.
