Next steps for wind energy in the UK – market frameworks and development, scaling up connectivity and capacity, and opportunities for regional economies

Thursday 6 May 2021

Online

This conference will examine priorities for wind energy in the UK, and developing its role in the wider energy sector.

The discussion takes place in the context of a range of government initiatives around clean energy production, including the Energy White Paper setting out the UK’s commitment to achieving net–zero emissions by 2050 and the strategy by which that will be achieved – with wind energy intended to play a significant role.

The conference will bring out latest thinking on:

  • priorities for the UK’s long–term approach to wind sector policy and development
  • preparing the infrastructure for increased wind power capacity
  • priorities for an approach that enables regional economies to lead sector development

The conference will be an opportunity for stakeholders to consider the issues alongside key policy officials who are due to attend fromBEIS; DfI, NI; DIT; DfE, NI; Llywodraeth Cymru; The Scottish Government and The Planning Inspectorate.

The agenda

  • Assessing policy priorities for UK wind sector development and practical steps for achieving goals – preparing the infrastructure, reducing integration barriers, and working towards net–zero
  • Next steps for market framework design and creating rules that support 40GW of wind capacity by 2030
    • The next round of Contracts for Difference auctions and what is needed to reduce barriers engagement and increase competitiveness
    • Scaling up wind power use across energy supply, supporting retail market decarbonisation, and widening consumer choice and new tariff models
    • Addressing challenges to expanding wind power capacity, restarting onshore projects, and enabling offshore assets to support emerging technologies such as floating wind
    • Priorities for developing the investment case for wind sector engagement – underpinning market stability, de–risking investment, and enhancing project profitability
  • Next steps for overcoming engineering challenges and reducing wind project LCOE – identifying site suitability, working within planning frameworks, and learning from best practice
  • Latest developments in wind turbine design, and enabling easier assembly and energy infrastructure integration
  • Latest thinking on reducing physical and regulatory barriers to energy system connectivity, and increasing grid flexibility and the provision of smart service
  • Opportunities for regional economies from wind sector development – growing local supply chains and employment, building up use cases for UK ports, and leading in government plans for the Green Industrial Revolution
  • The future for innovating and commercialising wind technology – reducing technology costs, growing innovation clusters, and bringing the hydrogen economy closer
  • Priorities for establishing effective policy tools, regulatory design, and a pathway to long–term energy and climate goals
