Our chief executive, Phil New, is delivering a keynote speech at the Energy Innovation Emporium.
Stuart Bradley, our renewables and marine practice manager, will also be at the Emporium. He’ll be participating in session 2A on “Wave and tidal energy: the case for intervention” in the afternoon.
Energy Technology Partnership (ETP) are hosting their second Energy Innovation Emporium to convene the energy community to inform Scotland’s energy future. Participants come from academia, industry and public bodies. By debating energy policy, they aim to identify avenues of cooperation, and define research and investment needs.
The recent publication by the Scottish Government of the Energy Strategy sets a vision for the future of Scotland’s energy sector to supply secure, reliable and affordable energy. With this vision comes a set of challenges and opportunities for industry, the public sector, and academia to work together in developing the innovation required to meet the challenging climate change ambitions. There are questions around the decarbonisation of heat, the integration of EVs into the grid, the reality of Hydrogen as an energy vector, and implications of setting energy productivity as a target.
This conference will bring together industry, the public sector and academia to discuss innovation for the Energy Strategy.
