The Major Renewables Event in Scotland
Six Separate Conferences Across Two Days
2015 will be a crucial year for the development of renewable energy in Scotland. The debate over further devolution, the General Election, the setting of European targets and the conclusion of the first round of allocation of Contracts for Difference will all have a major impact on the industry.
The sector is also expected to achieve the milestone of generating the equivalent of 50% of Scotland’s annual electricity needs. However, it is clear that the goal of increasing the amount of energy sourced from renewables will only become more challenging as we seek to kick-start the build out of offshore wind, commercialisation of wave and tidal power, and the roll out of renewable heat.
Our success in achieving these goals will also throw up new challenges and questions about inter-connection, storage, demand management and the overall energy mix that best keeps down costs for consumers, cuts carbon, and promotes energy security.
All of these will require new ways of working, new technology and new emphasis on leadership by industry, government and regulators.
With various events spread over two days, the 2015 Scottish Renewables Annual Conference will look at these issues and more, as we seek to set a course for the next stage of the growth of renewable energy in Scotland
Recognised as the ‘must attend’ industry event focused on the development of renewable energy in Scotland, this is your chance to hear from the people making the decisions that will define the future of the sector; to find out more about its development; to network with the key business contacts, influencers and decision makers; and to put forward your views on these crucial issues at this vital time for the industry.

The event is designed to benefit anyone with an interest in the development of renewable energy in Scotland, ranging from developers, suppliers and potential suppliers, professional services, technical consultancy, manufacturers, investors, regulators, national and local government, representative groups, through to students and staff in the academic sector.
