Workshop

By invitation only – please apply to Jo Wilkinson at jwilkinson@solarmedia.co.uk

This dialogue is an opportunity to discuss the recent call for evidence on enabling a high renewable, net zero electricity system issued by the UK Government and will look into:

  • What an effective market design would look like from the perspective of investors: a discussion around mechanisms for revenue stabilisation or carbon pricing
  • Corporate PPA volumes and why they might not be enough to get the UK to net zero
  • The impact of merchant models on cost of capital
