Renewable Energy Speakers – keynote, conference, and technical renewables experts: under the Paris Agreement of 2016 almost all the countries of the world committed to ‘pursue efforts to limit the global average temperature increase to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels’. Such rapid decarbonisation of industry and the economy demands the fast development of new and innovative sources of energy production. We are now all familiar with the sight of wind turbines in the breezier parts of our world. They dot the hills of northern England and in regions such as Andalusia wind power is a massive energy-producing business. In the North Sea the four offshore farms of the Dogger Bank development when completed will produce a combined total of 4.8 gigawatts of power. With improvements in technology solar power has developed quickly – and especially as a distributed source of domestic power. Speakers address the future of these technologies together with the prospects for nuclear, hydro, ground source heat systems, biomass, and new battery developments.
