Read Professor Michael Grubb's comments on the revised transcript of evidence taken before The Select Committee on Science and Technology on 4 November 2014.  

The House of Lords is conducting an inquiry into the resilience of electricity infrastructure. This includes electricity generation, transmission and distribution infrastructure. 

Energy policy in the UK focusses on balancing three interconnected demands: energy security, affordability and decarbonisation. This is known as the energy trilemma. Within this framework, this inquiry looks specifically at the current and future contribution of science and technology to ensuring the resilience of the UK’s electricity infrastructure.
