This webinar session explores the energy trends, topics and events that shaped the year 2019. We look at the blackouts, batteries and Brexit, as well as key market shifts and policy changes. In addition to the implications these had on 2019, we’ll discuss how these affect future energy markets as we move forward into 2020.
We’ll also revisit some of the key predictions made at the beginning of the year, and analyse how reality matched up in the UK, Ireland, and across the globe.
