Hydro's Place in Net-Zero
With the Scottish Government having set ambitious climate targets within the last 12 months for a 75% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030 and net-zero by 2045, it is clear that our energy system is set to undergo a period of rapid transformation. With the cost of other renewable technologies continuing to fall, the need to secure the hydro sector's rightful place in our future energy mix is more important than ever.
This year's conference will bring industry together to recognise the unique benefits that hydropower can deliver in a net-zero future and what innovative new opportunities will be available to the sector in the years to come.
Key questions the event will answer:
- What are the unique opportunities for hydropower in delivering net-zero?
How can hydropower help overcome the new challenges of a increasingly decentralised energy system?
What new opportunities could co-location of technologies offer for hydropower?
What is the potential role of hydropower in electric vehicle charging and hydrogen production?
What revenue opportunities are available in a post-subsidy landscape?
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.
