Seminar: A planning system for net-zero

Jeremy Sainsbury OBE, a Director at Natural Power, is set to speak at Scottish Renewables' forthcoming seminar, ‘A planning system for net-zero'. The online event will take place Wednesday 17th February between 10am and 1pm.

This seminar brings the industry together to recognise the key role renewable energy plays in delivering net-zero and the changes that will need to happen within the planning system if we are to deploy projects at the pace and scale our emissions reductions targets require.

This session will delve deep into the detail of the committee on climate change's sixth carbon budget and the Scottish Government's NPF4 Position Statement to discuss implications for the level of deployment needed to deliver on Scotland's ambitious climate change commitments.
The seminar will be chaired by Scottish Renewables' Policy Manager, Stephanie Conesa.
