Turcan Connell, Savills and Saffery Champness are jointly hosting a full day conference, 'Powering Ahead in Scotland', which will take place on Wednesday 2nd November, near Edinburgh. The conference will look at the role of landowners in meeting the Scottish Government's 100% renewable electricity target and is aimed specifically at landowners, rather than professional advisers, who currently have, or are considering a renewable energy project on their land.

Luke Borwick of Scottish Land & Estates is chairing the event and the keynote speech will be delivered by Fergus Ewing MSP, Minister for Energy, Enterprise & Tourism. The day will also include presentations on financing renewables, energy v food crops and the risks and opportunities for landowners associated with carbon. There will be a debate on renewables and the Scottish landscape hosted by Bill Jamieson of The Scotsman and break-out sessions looking at the tax, market and practical implications as well as the legal issues associated with wind, biomass/RHI and hydro-electric development.
