Energy Seminar

3 December 2019

On Thursday 14th November, Hewitsons hosted an energy seminar looking at the Opportunities and market trends in the UK energy sector for investors, developers, landowners and others. This was a very topical seminar, reflected by the large  number of delegates as the topic of energy is rarely out of UK  news. Whether it is the Government's commitment to zero net carbon emissions by 2050 and the consequent drive to replace conventional power with renewable energy, the growth of electric vehicles or the risk of blackouts, energy is at the top of the agenda.In addition to Hewitsons’ Partners Nick Fothergill and Simon Wain who presented on the recent trends and developments in investment transactions and project construction in the UK energy sector, other presenters included Neil Budd from Budd Legal, who spoke about current trends in energy and project development in the UK. Daniel Atzori from Research Partner at Cornwall Insight, presented on the crucial role that market forces are set to play in the decarbonisation of the UK economy.  Mark Sommerfeld Policy Manager, The Renewable Energy Association spoke about renewable energy policy and future developments in the field of renewables.Hewitsons has also recently secured top tier media coverage in The Telegraph and The Independent, amongst others, covering Simon Wains commentary on the recent UK news of Energy firms facing a crackdown after string of suppliers have gone bust leaving customers in limbo.
