This seminar will be of interest to senior management and CEO’s of all companies which will have to deal with the evolving low carbon regulatory regimes or who are contemplating operating or investing in the UK’s cleantech/renewables sector. The seminar will look closely at the current practicalities and regulatory framework in the UK, in particular focusing on:

  • the new challenges resulting from the UK government’s response to climate change (e.g. regulatory challenges arising from the Carbon Reduction Commitment);
  • the growth/investment opportunities, resulting from climate change, and the related regulatory regimes. The opportunities are both regulatory (e.g. UK government direct and indirect support for the renewable energy and cleantech sectors) and commercial (e.g. opportunities to lever off the vibrant venture capital and private equity community based in London, which is increasingly focused on renewable energy and cleantech sectors).

The panel of speakers represents a cross section of experts and stakeholders in this sector:

  • Professor David Cope (Chairman) of The Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology
  • Jonathan Bryers, Partner, Carbon Trust Investments
  • Adrian Fox, Supply Chain Manager, Marine Estate of The Crown Estate
  • Mr Louis Turner, Director of the Asia Pacific Technology Network
  • Mr Angus Evers, Head of Environment at SJ Berwin LLP
