The Future of Hydropower
Hydropower has long held a special place in Scotland’s energy system but the last few years have been a challenging time for the sector, with the removal of subsidies for small-scale and a continued lack of policy support for pumped storage.
Meeting our net-zero ambitions will require every technology we’ve got and as we look towards a green economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic we know that hydropower is uniquely placed to deliver benefits across Scotland.
As the energy system continues to evolve, new opportunities and challenges lie in store for the sector. Grasping them now will ensure we keep delivering renewable power from the glens to the grid for years to come.
Scottish Renewables’ Hydro Conference 2021 will bring together key industry players to discuss these issues and more.
- What future opportunities look like for small and large-scale hydro schemes
- The unique role hydro can play in our rural economy
- How pumped storage hydro’s full potential can be unleashed
At this critical time for the hydro sector 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 hydro sector in Scotland. Hydro and pumped storage 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.
