Policy priorities for renewable energy in England

Thursday, 25th May 2017

Central London

This event is CPD certified 

Guest of Honour: Charlotte Middleton, Deputy Director, Clean Electricity, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

This seminar will examine key issues for the UK renewables sector - including meeting the renewable generation and carbon budget targets set by the UK Government and the sector's place in the UK energy mix going forward.

It will be an opportunity to discuss the results of the Contracts for Difference allocation round and next steps for the sector following the Government's decision to reduce subsidies under the Renewables Obligation for solar.

Delegates will also assess the implications of the changes to the Feed in Tariff scheme and the upcoming results of the consultation on generation tariffs for anaerobic digestion and micro-combined heat and power - as well as the government consultation on closing unabated coal power plants in the UK by 2025.

Further sessions focus on the implications of leaving the EU for renewable policy and future support for the sector, including prospects for investment in solar, wind and biomass.

The agenda also looks at latest developments in technology, including advances in storage and home renewable generation.

We are delighted to be able to include in this seminar keynote addresses from: Charlotte Middleton, Deputy Director, Clean Electricity, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy; Professor Jim Skea, President, Energy Institute and Member, Committee on Climate Change; Professor Jim Watson, Director, UK Energy Research Centre and David Wright, Director, Electricity Transmission and Chief Engineer, National Grid.

Further confirmed speakers include: Maria Connolly, Head of Real Estate and Energy & Renewables, TLT; Bruce Davis, Managing Director, Abundance Investment; Mark Howitt, Founding Director, Storelectric; Abid Kazim, UK Managing Director, NextEnergy Capital and Adriana Laguna-Estopier, Low Carbon Technologies Manager, UK Power Networks.

We are pleased that Rt Hon the Baroness Featherstone, Liberal Democrat Lords Spokesperson, Energy and Climate Change has agreed to chair part of this seminar.
