Guest of Honour: Edwina Hart AM, Minister for the Economy, Science and Transport

This conference will be an opportunity to discuss priorities for energy policy in Wales as powers to approve energy projects up to 350MW are due to be devolved to the Welsh Government.

Delegates will assess the potential for Wales to take a lead on low-carbon energy, and the priorities including planning reform and steps to secure private and European Commission funding.

Planned sessions also look at challenges for the future of energy distribution including the development of smart grids and improving capacity to support increased volumes of renewable energy and distributed generation.

The conference will bring together key policymakers from the European Commission, and Welsh and UK Governments with stakeholders across the energy sector as well as energy-intensive businesses, consumer groups, environmental organisations, local authorities, academics, and others with an interest in these important issues.

We are delighted that Edwina Hart AM, Minister for Economy, Science and Transport, Welsh Government has agreed to deliver a keynote address at this seminar.

Chris Blake, Director, The Green Valleys (Wales) CIC has also agreed to speak.
