About the Event

The Future of Hydropower in Scotland

With the Feed-in Tariff set to close, and at best a policy gap before any future support fully emerges, the future for Scotland’s hydro sector is uncertain.

This year’s conference will bring the industry together to consider how to secure hydro’s place in an ever-changing energy system and economic landscape.

Key questions the event will answer:

  • What new business models are likely to emerge following the closure of the Feed-in Tariff?
  • Will the BEIS proposals around a smart export tariff work for hydro?
  • Will the DSO transition stimulate a further market in hydro development?
  • What innovations are possible in the hydro sector, and how will they make a difference to revenue streams?
  • What do changing grid charges mean for hydro?
  • Will planning reform enable more hydro development?

Why attend?
At this critical time for the hydro sector we bring together industry leaders and political influencers to debate and discuss 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.
