Hydro Conference 2021
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.
