Dr Joe Briscoe contributes to COP26 special edition of Queen Mary's Energy and Climate Change Law Institute Review
1 November 2021
The Energy & Climate Change Law Institute at Queen Mary University of London are delighted to publish its law review focused on COP 26. With a foreword by Lord Carnwath CVO and introduction by guest editor Professor Stephen Tromans QC, the review takes a fresh look at what urgently needs to be done, weighed up against what is both practical and achievable. Bringing together academics, leading lawyers, scientists, regulators, and policymakers the Review provides several fascinating insights around four themes at the very centre of climate change - the impact on people, technology, finance, and governance.
Dr Joe Briscoe and Stuart Bedford - corporate partner at Linklaters and Global Co-Head of the Linklaters Technology Sector - collaborate on an article discussing how investment routes can be improved for new technologies under development to tackle green energy and climate change. The article focuses on two emerging areas at different stages of commercialisation - perovskite solar cells and photocatalytic hydrogen generation - as examples of how financing of emerging low-carbon technologies can and should be improved to accelerate their development in the future.
