Wind power is one of the largest sources of renewable energy in the UK
and will play a key role in helping the UK to achieve net zero by 2050.
But there are several challenges that the industry must address first - supply chain fragmentation, grid connectivity, future labour requirements and strict planning procedures.
Chaired by Lord Deben, Chair, Committee for Climate Change, join Westminster Insight’s Advancing UK Wind Power Digital Conference
to hear experts from government, industry and civil society.
Senior speakers from BEIS, The Scottish Government, Vestas, The Crown Estate, and the National Grid
will share their insights alongside renewable energy industry experts.
