Energy Focus

Energy Focus is the journal of the Parliamentary Group for Energy Studies. Published three times a year – in April, August and December – it features exclusive articles from experts across all areas of the energy industry, interviews with Whitehall insiders, and contributions from those who address our speaker meetings. It also acts as a record of all relevant parliamentary activity and departmental announcements.

An archive of Energy Focus is held by the Energy Institute.

We would like to express our thanks to this year’s sponsors of Energy Focus: Fluor
