Scottish Renewables Onshore Wind Conference

Wed 07 Sep, 2022
Glasgow, UK

SLR is delighted to be sponsoring and exhibiting at the upcoming Scottish Renewables Onshore Wind Conference, taking place at the Hilton, Glasgow on 7 September 2022.

Onshore wind is already a key part of the UK’s decarbonisation success story. Renewable energy is on course to overtake fossil fuels as the biggest source of UK power and a quarter of that electricity comes from onshore wind. It has delivered thousands of jobs across the UK, not least in Scotland. 

The benefits of onshore wind are clear to us in industry and many in government – the low-cost power it can provide is vital to keep consumer bills down and support the competitiveness of UK industry in the net-zero transition. To meet the challenge of net-zero, we must scale-up the growth of renewables and the industry has set an ambition for 30GW of onshore wind by 2030. 

But just as we need to accelerate deployment, uncertainty persists as planning, grid and market reforms move forward at a glacial pace.

The Onshore Wind Conference 2022 will examine all these issues and more.

The sessions will include:

  • How the global onshore wind sector is moving, and its implications for the UK market
  • The scope of the UK’s onshore wind ambition, and the opportunities it offers to industry
  • How the policy landscape is changing - and the impact this could have on project development
  • The shifting expectations of what a renewable energy project should deliver, and how this shapes project design
