Professor Michael Pollitt, Cambridge Judge Business School

Energy policy in every country aims to deliver secure, affordable and clean energy to power the economy. However simultaneously achieving these three goals is difficult and contentious and there are wide variations between countries in their approach to policy.

In his inaugural lecture, Michael will explore some of the key social aspects to the promotion of ‘good’ energy policy. These include the use of evidence and prediction; public trust, understanding, attitudes and beliefs; institutional design and collective action; the varying concepts of what is ‘good’ and ‘just’; the role of the state vs private actors; vested interests and legacy investments; and the need for new business models.
