The next phase of onshore wind
It is clear that onshore wind can and should play a fundamental role in generating the low-cost, low-carbon power needed to meet government targets and climate obligations. At a time of changing policy frameworks, we open this conference by addressing our priorities for the years ahead. What is onshore wind’s role in the future energy system? How do we accelerate cost reduction? And how do we best make the case to government that onshore wind is delivering and here to stay?

The new financial landscape
As the sector seeks to compete on cost with alternatives, this session considers what framework is needed to level the playing field. We will hear detail on the new market landscape for wind development, debate where further cost reductions can come from, and discuss novel opportunities for further development.

Networks: costs, queues and co-location
Securing timely and affordable access to the electricity network remains a central priority for all involved in the renewable electricity sector. In this session we examine recent developments across charging frameworks, flexibility and connection management and consider the risks and opportunities that this presents for the onshore wind industry.

Communities and planning
How could planning policy shape the future development of the sector, and what should our aspirations be for community participation?
In this session we consider what role onshore wind is expected to play in the next National Planning Framework, the potential for taking a more strategic approach to planning in Scotland, and new thinking in how best to engage communities in projects.
