RenewableUK and Solar Energy UK have teamed up to present a one-of-a-kind virtual event series designed specifically to bring together buyers and sellers of clean energy to explore opportunities, learn how to remove barriers to procurement and establish robust cases for long-term investment in power purchase agreements.
Sessions will be supported by event partners EDF Renewables, ScottishPower, techUK and WaterUK, with industry sponsors including CMS, DLA Piper, Weightmans and Zeigo.
The transport industry - Wednesday, June 2, 10-11.30am
Reducing carbon emissions is a priority for the transport sector and electrification will be the main route to net-zero. Opportunities to reconfigure how vehicles run – from electric vehicles to green hydrogen-based shipping, to entire overground rail networks powered by renewables – are now growing fast, with clean benefits. How does the Transport sector go about using clean energy to fundamentally alter how it powers everything – from trains to lorries to the entire transportation network?
Public Sector - Thursday, July 1, 10-11.30am
This webinar will focus on the growth of clean energy in the public sector, tackling the challenges of today so we can pave the way to PPAs in the short-, medium- and long-term. Case studies and panelists will address:
- What clean energy sourcing options are there for different public sector organisations
- How to upskill and cross skill, building competencies and capacity to handle this more complex procurement
- How to budget for it, considering long-term investment and gains
- How to work in aggregate models which will help deliver scale and capacity to negotiate these contracts
- Risk reduction and long-term pricing strategies
- Public sector procurement challenges and engaging stakeholders
The virtual event will bring together leading providers of clean energy, their experience of multiple types of PPAs in the UK and Europe, and public sector organisations interested in learning more, to both influence their organisations and plan for the future.
Delegates will have the opportunity to influence UK decision-makers developing the regulatory frameworks for power procurement and consumption during exclusive interactive Q&A sessions, as well as gaining access to business intelligence reports and state-of-the-art technology insights. With individuals from many different areas attending from senior procurement and corporate sustainability executives to analysts, banks, developers and more, there will also be the chance to network and engage with colleagues across the field.
The Clean Energy Exchange 2021 webinar series is available to all and free to members of RenewableUK or Solar Energy UK.
