The Contract for Difference (CfD) was established seven years ago to provide low carbon generators with both revenue and regime stability. LCCC is the experienced counterparty the CfD, maintains investor confidence and minimises costs to consumers. Neil McDermott, CEO, Low Carbon Contracts Company will discuss the vital role the CfD has in the UK achieving its net zero ambition, the importance of the CfD to the investor community and share some insights into the future benefits and applications of the CfD.
This session will look at what to expect in 2022. We analyse major projects announced, upcoming tenders and how the sector is closing the gap between where we are now and executing ambitious installation targets set by international governments
As subsidies wane across Europe, there is a need for generators to look at their routes to market and much has been said of the merchant model but are investors ready to take on the risk of merchant projects?
This session is a chance to discuss the future of power sales as companies move away from subsidised projects and reduce reliance on PPAs, towards trading energy. We will discuss how companies can navigate these waters as power prices fluctuate, what hedging mechanisms exist and how nimble and responsive you need to be to succeed.
This panel will look at changing ownership profiles within the sector. As we see a rise in investment funds with ambitious ESG targets and oil and gas companies interested in renewables, what impact will these players have on the sector? Is wind becoming more of a game for larger players? How are current asset owners planning for the future and what looks attractive from an acquisition perspective?
Green hydrogen will be the missing piece of the decarbonisation puzzle when it comes to renewable energy and floating wind represents the next stage of the wind industry's growth. Combined, these two energy sources could enable net zero ambitions and this panel will explore a UK-based project in development from different perspectives in the value chain.
Green hydrogen offers a huge opportunity to decarbonise heavy industry and to promote growth in the wind sector but to deliver on the promise, there are barriers to overcome. This session will uncover lender and investor appetite in the market, how the cost of equipment is changing, where governments are fostering local industries and what the offtake market for hydrogen looks like.
Join us at the end of day one for a round or two of drinks and catch up with attendees at the event. We've missed in-person networking and look forward to seeing you there!
