Net Zero Power by 2035? The Race to
Deploy and Integrate Renewables
The Aurora Renewables Summit London 2022 took place in-person on Tuesday 26th April in Central London, during the fourth round of the Contracts for Difference (CfD) auction round and at a time of rapidly rising interest in hydrogen, including amongst major renewables companies looking at the potential to diversify.
Our senior speakers, including Amber Rudd, former UK Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change; Louise Kingham, Senior VP for Europe & UK Country Chair at BP; and Danielle Lane, UK Country Manager at Vattenfall discussed energy under the most challenging of contexts: the geopolitical consequences of the war in Ukraine and the climate crisis. The main topics where the role of offshore wind in driving towards Net Zero power and investing in hydrogen as a complement for renewables.
The Summit welcomed over 300 delegates from across the renewables sector and provided a great networking platform with plenty of interaction opportunities during the day, including a drinks reception in the evening.
Special thanks to our speakers and partners for helping to make a success of the Summit. It was a pleasure to work with our premium partners bp and Lloyds Bank and our supporting partner Clarke Energy.
