Energy Weekly
  • Rising prices, climate summit, skills shortage Dec 01, 2010 - 6:06 pm
  • In this week's podcast: The early onslaught of winter in Europe has pushed the prices up of natural gas, thermal coal and oil. We’ll be asking what this means for electricity prices and what the outlook is for the rest of the winter.
    Climate talks start again this week in Cancun and with the Kyoto Treaty due to expire in 2012, we’ll be examining what the chances are of getting a binding agreement at this year’s summit.
    But we start this week’s show with Engineering UK’s annual report launched today warning of an engineering skills shortage. To tell us more we welcome the chief executive of Engineering UK, Paul Jackson, as our guest this week.

    Presented by Sylvia Pfeifer with David Blair, Javier Blas and Fiona Harvey.

    Produced by LJ Filotrani
