The role of renewable energy in powering a net zero Wales will be the focus of a new conference announced today.
Hosted and organised by RenewableUK Cymru, the Future Energy Wales Conference and Exhibition will take place on Thursday 2 July in the Wales ICC Wales, Newport.
Lesley Griffiths AM, Minister for Environment, Energy and Rural affairs will deliver a keynote address to delegates.
Throughout the day-long conference, industry experts will discuss progress and options for overcoming the complex challenge of re-engineering an energy system to accommodate the future shape and scale of low carbon power generation and demand.
Three broad themes for the inaugural conference will be:
- The decade ahead
- Re-purposing our energy system infrastructure
- Growth and investment in renewables.
RenewableUK Cymru Head Rhys Wyn Jones said “2020 is the first full year of Wales’ response to the climate emergency and the decade ahead will dictate the pace at which we get to netzero. We’re excited about hosting the conference at the new Wales ICC, which will be home to Future Energy Wales for the next two years, and to welcoming developers, policy makers and all those with a stake in delivering netzero emissions for Wales.”
Early bird tickets are available from www.future-energy.wales priced from £50 until 29 February.
