THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will assess the priorities for expanding the UK’s Green Economy, delivering low-carbon electricity and developing green infrastructure.
Delegates will consider the potential implications of key measures from the Government’s recently released Clean Growth Strategy which focuses on how the UK can secure industrial and economic advantage from the global transition to a low carbon economy. They will also examine how the Government’s environmental policy can best nurture the creation of new technologies and businesses in light of predictions that the low carbon economy could grow 11% per year between 2015 and 2030.
With the UK set to miss its 2020 renewable targets, and following the recent private acquisition of the GIG and the Green Deal Finance Company, sessions will also consider opportunities for attracting further private investment in green projects. Attendees will examine the challenges for engaging investors who traditionally avoid public subsidy models, and for balancing commercial viability with the need for clean energy infrastructure.
The agenda also includes discussion on the future for less established technologies, the outlook for cross sector strategies to ensure effective emissions management and reduction, and the Government’s priorities following the announcement of £2.5 billion investment to support low carbon innovation from 2015 to 2021.
