Take Aim at Your Emissions

13-14 June in London

Exchange ideas with other companies on the path to decarbonization and discover solutions with interactive breakouts, workshops, and plenty of time for networking built in.

What We’ll Learn Together

During the event, we’ll dig into what it really takes to achieve a carbon-free future with sessions focused on market trends, emerging challenges, and new opportunities on the renewable energy horizon.

Challenges & Solutions

Take advantage of the opportunity to exchange ideas, tackle challenges, and discuss the rapidly changing renewable energy landscape with experts. Discover solutions with interactive breakouts and workshops tailored to both foundational and advanced topics.

Renewable Energy Markets

As the European Union (EU) continues to push for sustainability and renewable energy adoption, the landscape of the renewable energy PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) market is evolving at a rapid pace. Our experts review which markets are ripe for renewable energy investment, best practices for transacting in new markets, how to create a strategy to tackle a global energy footprint, and more.

Power Purchase Agreements

As your company’s 2030 targets draw ever closer, it’s time to accelerate your renewable energy procurement strategy. Corporate buyers and PPA “sellers” will discuss key drivers and constraints, risk management strategies, as well as how negotiations are impacted by the varied considerations at play in the market.

Scope 3 Emissions

With supply chain emissions averaging 11.4 times higher than operational emissions, decarbonizing supply chains is one of the most significant climate actions a company can take. We’ll explore the emerging and effective strategies that have proven to impact supplier engagement and clean energy investments across the value chain.

Agenda

During this two-day event, we’ll explore new methods for deploying renewables that can accelerate your company’s decarbonization and adoption of clean technology. We’re still finalizing the agenda details, but check back soon and more information will be available.
