National workshop: UK
When: Thursday, 3 October 2019, 11:00 - 12:30
Where: 130 participants
Recently, Europe has witnessed an acceleration in the pace of corporate sourcing of renewables. This trend, however, has broadly been concentrated in a few countries with others failing to take off.
Identifying which barriers are holding back the expansion of corporate sourcing in these markets as well as working on the policy adjustments to stimulate a rapid scale-up of renewable energy sourcing activities is crucial to untapping this huge opportunity.
During this 1.5 hour session we will discuss national challenges and barriers and specific country experiences, putting together recommendations and solutions for a consistent, credible and feasible approach to accelerate corporate sourcing nationally and across borders.
- Will corporate PPAs drive the UK subsidy-free renewables market? What are the main barriers to entry?
- How does the UK regulatory framework differ from other European jurisdictions?
- How will uncertainty over Brexit and wide-ranging regulatory changes affect corporate investment?
- What are the main drivers for corporates taking direct action to procure clean power?
- Are buyers in the UK choosing physical over virtual PPAs? And are baseload PPAs becoming more popular?
- Will the UK’s net-zero legislation encourage a substantial roll-out of new solar and wind projects?
- Are REGOs helping to drive additionality?
