Expanding the UK's Green Economy: investor confidence, low-carbon infrastructure and the Clean Growth Plan

Delegates at this seminar will assess the priorities for expanding the UK’s Green Economy, delivering low-carbon electricity and developing green infrastructure.

With the UK set to miss its 2020 renewable targets, and following the recent private acquisition of the GIG and the Green Deal Finance Company, delegates will consider opportunities for attracting further private investment in green projects. Sessions will examine the challenges for engaging investors who traditionally avoid public subsidy models, and for balancing commercial viability with the need for clean energy infrastructure.
