Hosted by Smith & Williamson in partnership with Low Carbon South West.
In the last few years - with changes to incentives & tariffs, shifts in governmental focus, modified support packages, innovations in technology, uncertainty in large scale projects and a turbulent international environment - the landscape for low carbon energy has been tempestuous and not without controversy.
With a snap election called, a background of Brexit negotiations and the recent Metro Mayoral election for the West of England, the time is right to investigate what our energy industries need from our next government.
Focused on potential UK Energy Policy, join our panel of expert speakers representing each of the major low carbon energy sectors - wind, solar, tidal, nuclear and waste-to-energy - on Thursday 25th May 2017, to hear their views on the direction we should be taking to secure our energy future.
- Wind - Andrew Garrad CBE. Co-founder of Garrad Hassan (now part of DNV GL), - Andrew received a CBE for services to renewable energy in 2017
- Nuclear - Prof. Tom Scott, Director of the South West Nuclear Hub and Professor in Materials for the University of Bristol
- Solar - Steve Edwards of Skyfall Energy
