Scotland’s onshore wind sector has been a huge success story: cutting carbon and costs while creating jobs and investment and enjoying strong public support. With major reviews of Scottish planning policy underway and renewed financial support from UK Government, this conference looks ahead at the role of the next generation of onshore wind in meeting our energy needs and carbon reduction targets.
Scottish Renewables’ Onshore Wind Conference 2020 brings together the people who matter in this sector to debate its future and discuss pathways for business to succeed while delivering even more social, economic and environmental benefits to Scotland.
This is no traditional conference: delegate input is as important as the speakers on the stage. We understand that networking is how you do business, and we're committed to helping you to forge the links you need. This event’s interactive programme will help you make the most of your time, fusing informative sessions which address the issues that matter with informal networking opportunities and a focused exhibition.
