Tobi Kelner leads a talk on the Zero Carbon Britain 2030 scenario which will touch on:
- Powering down: how we can reduce energy consumption by 50%.
- Powering up: how we can then produce 100% of the energy required from renewable sources.
- Variability issues: how we deal with the fact that the wind doesn't always blow.

The talk will take approximately 45-60 minutes with time for questions and answer. A light refreshment buffet will follow.
