    Our industry is a critical part of our UK and global response to climate change. The UK is a world leader in offshore wind, and we are seeing rapid expansion across the globe. But in the midst of a global pandemic, how does our industry prioritise and stay on the path to low carbon growth. We brought together leading figures from across our industry to talk about the continued opportunity for offshore wind and reflect on what our changed environment means for our businesses.

    Chair: Maf Smith, Director, Lumen Energy & Environment

    10:00-11:30 BST


    Sponsored by The Scottish Government
    Decarbonising heat – meaning reducing and eliminating the greenhouse gases emitted during its generation and use – is essential to tackling climate change. Our panel of experts will be looking at policy; low carbon heat in general and heat networks/district heating at home (UK-wide and Glasgow’s Queens Quay Project in particular) and abroad.

    Topics that may come under the spotlight include:

    • Low emission towns and cities: What’s needed to deliver cleaner air and economic growth?
    • Stimulating a sustainable recovery post COVID-19 is great, but what’s needed now to make it happen?

    Chair: Dr Keith MacLean OBE, Managing Director, Providence Policy

    Speakers:
    Gareth Fenney, Head of Heat Strategy Unit, The Scottish Government
    Nick Gosling, Group Sales and Strategy Director, Vital Energi
    Dave Pearson, Director, Star Renewable Energy
    Morten Jordt Duedahl, Business Development Manager, Danish Board of District Heating (DBDH)
