Event description

Description

Donald Trump's decision to withdraw The US from the Paris climate change accords has brought up many questions for the industry. Although 195 countries signed up to the treaty, the purpose of having a world agreement is to create a multi-lateral strategy for reducing CO2 emissions, its success much depends on every country signing up to it. To think that a policy in the US does not affect Europe is simply misguided. When one country pulls out, the entire agreement is weakened. This event offers investors, project managers, businesses and ministers an opportunity to hear the opinions of a number of experts who are close to this subject and directly involved in COP21 as well as domestic policy making. This evening is a must for any investors with large scale renewable energy assets who have questions about the ramifications of Trumps decision. We expect to reach capacity of 100 and like our previous and highly successful event on "Brexit and Renewables" promises to be both informative and thought provoking. The first part will be a discussion among the expert panel led by a moderator which will be followed by questions from delegates. The event will end with an hours networking drinks reception.
