Aurora Summer Renewables Summit 2018
Thursday 28 June (Central London)
Renewables has dominated power sector investment in the UK and Europe over the past decade and will continue to do so in years to come. The nature of investment is changing rapidly, however, as subsidies wane, merchant risks increase, and much remains uncertain about policy and market outlook.
Under the overarching theme of subsidy-free renewables, Aurora’s Summit will focus on two key areas: policy and investment and drill down into the most pressing issues, stimulating discussion, and helping to move on the debate.
The Summit will bring original analysis and forecasting from the Aurora team together with provocative insight and discussion from leading industry figures in a focused, half day session in central London.
Lord Deben (Committee on Climate Change) Dr. Ashley Ibbett (BEIS), Hugh Brennan (Hive Energy), Joris Rademakers (Forsa Energy), Mallika Ishwaran (Shell) Juan Rivier Abbad (Iberdrola Renovables), Minal Patel (Foresight Group), Richard Howard (Aurora).
Other speakers will be announced in coming weeks.
