Further, the discussion will also focus on UK’s priorities for energy and climate change in the Brexit negotiations and how dependent the UK is on energy imports and what impact might Brexit have on the security of supply and the UK energy mix.

Finally the committee will also look upon UK’s role in future climate change diplomacy.
