Discussing the critical issues….

Prospects for regional cooperation and integration of renewables – the views of transmission system operators and policymakers

How do national support schemes differ? What are the challenges to further harmonisation? What about possible Implications of the ‘Ålands Case’? Are capacity remuneration mechanisms unavoidable in countries with large shares of renewables? And what types of capacity mechanisms can be used, what are the drawbacks and what other markets are likely to implement them?

Investigate thermal generator business models – threats and opportunities as seen by coal and gas plant operators

Explore the role of coal-fired power generation today. What will be the investment and its role in future? It can help to keep the lights on but at what cost? What regulation impact will we see? What coal to biomass lessons can be had? And are new build gas-fired power stations investible on the basis of capacity payments?

Lifting the lid on the new targets for the EU to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, raise efficiency and deploy renewables by 2030

Have they gone far enough? Will they deliver harmonization? Do they provide the right global message? What about reform opposition? Are the targets technology neutral? Will allowances be scaled back over time and in which markets?

And much, much more including:

Economics for new nuclear – after Olkiluoto and Flamanville, can Hinkley Point C buck the cost/deadline trend for the EPR? And what measures are needed to stimulate investment and improve investor confidence?

This Summit will leave no stone unturned to debate all of the above so register today and join the discussion this April in London.
