Onshore Wind 2020 takes place following a major breakthrough in UK Government policy that support the construction of a new wave of onshore wind farms. The UK Government has announced that next year it will run the first new Contracts for Difference open to onshore wind in six years. Government’s recognition of the role low cost onshore wind can play in meeting our net zero emissions target opens up a new opportunity for long-term growth in the sector and is the result of long-running advocacy by RenewableUK and our members. This auction provides our industry with the opportunity to prove that onshore wind can deliver the low-cost, large-scale clean power the UK needs.
Onshore Wind 2020 will provide market-leading insight into the upcoming CfD auction. Our event will bring together business leaders and policy experts from across the industry to explore the scope and parameters of the upcoming CfD auction, opportunities for merchant and corporate PPA backed onshore wind, as well as the wider challenges in building a pipeline of new projects. Our conference programme will help developers, supply chain companies and service providers of all kinds understand and take advantage of the new opportunities opening up in the onshore wind market.
