As the UK is moving towards major reform of the electricity market, this lecture will examine the carbon price floor in detail, outlining how it will work, how it will interact with the other measures to be introduced, and what the implications will be for the European carbon market.

The Beesley Lectures are a series of eight annual lectures covering regulated industries in the UK. Now in their twentieth year, the lectures are held in memory of Professor Michael Beesley, who was a leading architect of the British system of utility regulation and a Managing Trustee of the Institute of Economic Affairs. He founded the series in 1991 and organised them until his death in 1999.

Taking place every Thursday between 22nd September and 10th November this year, the events will begin with registration at 6.30pm at the Institute of Directors. Delegates are encouraged to network over refreshments until 7pm, when the lecture will commence. An industry-leading speaker will address the audience for one hour and a specialist will give a short response before handing over to the floor for further discussion. Each lecture will end at 8.45pm with refreshments.
