lock Last call seminar 1 November: Global Renewable Energy Strategies, London

What are the strategic options for corporates to source 100% renewables globally?

Please hold this date for a unique high profile event being held for large corporates seeking to refine their global renewable energy strategies, potentially striving towards 100% renewable power via various options.

Sustainability and climate change are increasing drivers for consumer choice – spurred on by new corporate commitments and targets prior to and following the Paris COP21 conference last year. This is creating a new type of bottom-up influence on the electricity market. This event will be jointly run by EY, RECS International and the RE100 campaign, and is to be focussed on sharing insights and discussing answers to several key questions:

·         How can I establish a robust global strategy?
·         How can I achieve Board level sign-off and select the right suppliers?
·         How can I source renewables efficiently in the post-Brexit UK market?
·         How do I plan for standardizing energy markets in Europe?
·         How can I demonstrate leadership and best practice in reporting?

The best strategies can deliver renewable electricity supply, lower carbon emissions and drive down energy costs for a global corporate. This can be achieved through optimising the opportunities for different technologies to be applied for onsite generation, near site private wire generation, and directly contracting through long term Power Purchasing Agreements. The changing regulatory landscape for corporate renewables across the UK and Europe will also be discussed by various policy experts.

Global Procurement Directors, Sustainability Leaders and Environmental Heads from AB-InBev, HSBC, Nestle and Unilever will be on the panels sharing first-hand ambitions, experiences and challenges from their renewables journeys. They will be joined by leaders from the RE100 campaign, as well as developers and utilities active in off-site 'sleeved' PPAs, in the UK and abroad. Green tariff and REC suppliers will be present along with carbon reporting and renewable energy labelling organisations.

We hope you can join us for this special free event at EY's 'Skyscape' Level 20 Client Suite, with stunning views across to the Millennium Dome.
