Will shale gas revolutionise the UK energy industry? This lecture will provide an historic perspective of gas in the UK energy mix, and examine future gas supply and prices, and how shale gas might impact energy policy.

The Beesley Lectures are a series of eight annual lectures covering regulated industries in the UK. 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 ofEconomic Affairs. He founded the series in 1991 and organised them until his death in 1999.

Taking place every Thursday between 20th September and 8th 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.
