2020 will be a very important year for climate change debate in the UK with among other things, the hosting of the major UN climate summit, COP26, in Glasgow. The Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit (ECIU) – a non-profit think-tank with the objective of supporting informed debate on energy and climate change issues – has a track record of unpacking complex energy and climate issues for media and parliamentarians, and working with a wide range of stakeholders. We produce regular expert briefings working alongside our Advisory Board.
