Speaker: Professor Michael Pollitt

Theme: Social sciences


There is much talk about how green investments could be a way to promote a post-COVID-19 economic recovery at the same time as achieving our climate policy goals. Professor Pollitt will explore exactly what the evidence is that green investments actually promote economic productivity and growth, and what the potential consequences of skewing the recovery towards green investments might be.

He is an Assistant Director of the Energy Policy Research Group (EPRG) and a joint academic director of the Centre on Regulation in Europe (CERRE). Michael is a Fellow in Economics and Management at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. Michael was an external economic advisor to Ofgem from 2007 to 2011. He has published 12 books and over 90 refereed journal articles on efficiency analysis, energy policy and business ethics.
