First Minister to address renewable energy conference

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon will deliver an address at Scottish Renewables’ Annual Conference to be held online this week.

The event, which will be held online across March 23-24, will feature speakers from business, policy and politics.

Up for debate during the conference will be the policies and actions needed to ensure Scotland reaches its net-zero target. Delegates will be able to take advantage of group and one-to-one networking experiences, a virtual exhibition hall and broadcast-quality online sessions.

Claire Mack, chief executive of Scottish Renewables, said: 

This is a pivotal year for Scotland’s renewable energy industry. With COP26 coming to Glasgow in November, life-changing policy will be debated right here in Scotland and the spotlight will be on our contribution as a nation to the climate change fight.

Renewable technologies like onshore and offshore wind, hydro power and solar PV are generating the equivalent of 90.1% of the country’s total electricity consumption and providing enormous environmental and economic benefits across the country, so we have much to be proud of.

But decarbonising our electricity, heat and transport systems at pace is going to be essential if we are to meet our net-zero targets, and it’s crucial that we have the policies and grid infrastructure needed to reach these ambitions.

The Annual Conference will once again bring together a range of speakers from across the industry to look ahead at the next steps for Scotland’s renewable energy sector and its businesses, and at what we need to do to ensure that our industry is at the heart of the nation’s journey to net-zero.”

The event will be held as seven sessions over two days, with the programme available to view now online.
