What the election means for climate & energy policy

Experts give their views

In two weeks voters go to the polls in one of the closest-fought and least predictable elections in a generation.  Carbon Brief has already pored over the political parties’ manifesto views on climate and energy.  But the chance of a multi-party coalition make it hard to extrapolate pre-election commitments into future government action.  Carbon Brief asked a range of experts for their views on the implications, in particular:

  • What are the key climate and energy dividing lines for the election?

  • How do you see potential election outcomes affecting climate and energy policy, post-election and in the run-up to Paris?

Here are the experts’ responses.
