We are delighted to be a partnering firm and the host of the first annual RenewableUK Legal & Commercial Conference, which will bring together legal professionals who advise on and execute legal strategy across the renewables sector.

Taking place the week after COP26, the renewable energy sector will be abuzz with ideas to implement the UK's net zero strategy and make the most of new opportunities. There has never been a more exciting time for renewable energy in the UK. The UK Government has enshrined ambitious targets into law, published the Energy White Paper with steps to deliver net zero, and the budget is being looked at to ensure that decarbonisation is not only an ideal, but an achievable goal within the next decades. What role will the law play in enabling all this, ensuring that the sector is able to take advantage of the opportunities and trends of the energy transition?

What will be covered?
• How to get from net zero aspirations to implementation in the year of COP26 and beyond
• Legal trends in enabling decarbonisation, decentralisation and digitalisation
Developing risk allocations and investable and bankable deal structures for new technologies to attract private investment and finance
• The role of regulation in systemic change
• The effective management of entitlement and disputes in the supply chain
• Contracting principles and risk allocation
• Management of entitlement in the supply chain
• PPA trends and future-proofing
• Disputes and legal pitfalls
