This timely seminar will be an opportunity to discuss the new Scottish energy strategy and priorities for the shaping of Scotland’s energy system - focusing on modernisation and key issues for delivery.

Sessions assess the future role of renewables - as well as wider low-carbon energies - and oil and gas, considering generation at a local level and opportunities for innovation - taking into account views within the energy sector and the importance of consumer engagement in developing a more modern energy mix.

Delegates will also consider the way forward for the decarbonisation of heat and transport, reducing consumption of electricity, heat and energy-intensive transport, and developing a smarter, flexible electricity network.

It will bring together representatives from the energy sector in Scotland including businesses operating in the renewable and non-renewable energy sectors, the environmental sector, their suppliers and advisors; representatives from local government and interest groups; along with academics, commentators and consumer groups, together with reporters from the national and trade press based in Scotland and elsewhere.
