With the Scottish Government’s NPF4 Position Statement making the commitment that “We will have to rebalance the planning system so that climate change is a guiding principle for all plans and decisions” a planning system capable of delivering net-zero could be on the horizon.
This seminar will bring industry together to recognise the key role renewable energy plays in delivering net-zero and the changes that will need to happen within the planning system if we are to deploy projects at the pace and scale our emissions reductions targets require.
Key questions this event will answer:
- What are the opportunities the NPF4 Position Statement offers for delivering net-zero?
- How can faster, more predictable and more consistent consenting be achieved?
- What new prospects does the scale and pace of deployment needed for net-zero offer?
- Does the planning system have the capacity needed to deliver on net-zero?
- What does rebalancing the planning system look like in practice?
At this critical time for onshore renewables, we bring together industry leaders and political influencers to collaborate and find answers to the key issues facing the industry.
Who should attend?
This event caters for anyone involved in the onshore renewables sector in Scotland. Wind, solar and heat developers (large and small), financiers and professional services, public sector agencies, community groups, academics, as well as anyone who has a part to play in either developing new innovations for the sector or who is already part of the wider supply chain should attend.
