Public Confidence in Energy Decision Processes: The Role of Public Authorities - June 2016

Planning workshop with the aim of helping researchers involved in the project to produce a draft work program that will guide Positive Energy’s agenda for the Public Authorities research stream over the next two years.This workshop helped us frame up the key research directions for our new research stream, which aims to find concrete, practical solutions to challenges in order to secure support from the full range of stakeholders.

We will identify priorities for research, analysis and engagement at this invitation-only workshop for senior leaders from the policy, regulatory, industry, ENGO, Indigenous and academic sectors.
