Renewables in Scotland: funding, innovation and next steps for policy - Central Edinburgh, 22 Nov 2017

Renewables in Scotland: funding, innovation and next steps for policy

Morning, Wednesday, 22nd November 2017

Central Edinburgh


This timely seminar will be an opportunity for policymakers and key stakeholders to discuss key issues for the renewable energy sector.

It takes place in the context of the upcoming allocation of Contract for Difference funding, due to be announced in Autumn 2017, the launch of the Capacity Market in 2018, and with the Scottish Government’s draft Energy Strategy setting a target of delivering half of Scotland’s heat, transport and electricity needs from renewable energy by 2030.

Delegates will discuss priorities for supporting innovation and commercialisation in the move towards a subsidy-free renewables market - assessing opportunities for attracting investment and reducing barriers faced by businesses seeking to develop large-scale renewable energy projects.

Sessions will also consider policy priorities for further support for Scotland’s energy network, including the rollout of energy storage and demand side response technologies, as well as the next steps for regulation of the grid and transmission networks.
