8.30am - 11.30am GMT

Renewable energy has undertaken a global adoption over the last decade as a means to alleviate climate change. It has become an ever-increasing part of the energy mix especially in decarbonising energy grids. Renewables ultimately have the power to reduce, or reverse our carbon output and promote environmental security making the decision to switch one of the most pressing issues of our time.

However, the global landscape for renewable energy is seeing vast change and challenge. Volatile supply chains and energy markets caused by the global pandemic and war in Europe the energy transition has reached a critical inflection point. The introduction of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and the significant incentives on offer has put the attractiveness of the European Renewable industry into sharp focus. Additionally, Digitalisation and Artificial intelligence have the opportunity to revolutionise business and wider society and could provide one the keys for Renewables to become the primary Energy Source in Europe.

Diligent, in partnership with Venterra and Board Agenda, have created this seminar to bring together board members and GRC professionals of the renewable industries, to debate challenges, and explore opportunity amongst their peers.
