- How can Wales meet both its energy needs and its environmental responsibilities?
- What role should physics and physics-based businesses play?
North Wales is well placed to take the lead in the future of electricity generation, with its combination of an already strong infrastructure, high-technology start-ups and a vibrant research and development base.
