Planning Conference

23 February 2022 | Glasgow

To achieve net-zero by 2030, Scotland will need 12GW more onshore wind, 10GW more offshore wind, 4GW more solar PV and to be building out new Pumped Storage Hydro projects. On top of that we’ll need to have decarbonised heat in half of Scotland’s homes and buildings while electrifying our transport systems. Gaining planning consent will be pivotal to achieving all of this and for building the supporting infrastructure this energy transition will need.

The NPF4 promised to transform planning to enable the achievement of net-zero but the text on the page is not living up to the promises. In the meantime, industry continues to take on the task of trying to achieve the levels of deployment net-zero demands while planning continues to be a major obstacle.

With demanding targets to be reached and 2030 less than 8 years away, Scottish Renewables’ Planning Conference will examine all these issues and more.

The 4-session programme will be published soon. To register your interest in speaking, exhibiting or sponsoring this event, please email Rachel Dickie, Events Manager.
