Greenbackers sponsors the Scottish Renewables annual Marine Energy Conference

25th May 2022 in Edinburgh at The George Hotel, Queen Street.
Featured session: 15:30 | Fireside chat with Andrew Smith, Partner at Greenbackers Investment Capital

Greenbackers are delighted to be sponsoring the Scottish Renewables annual Marine Energy Conference at this pivotal point in the development of marine energy – as a material part of the energy generation mix that will deliver a decarbonised economy.

The potential to turn Scotland from an early innovator into a marine energy powerhouse is tantalisingly close.

There have been significant signs of increased appetite among a range of investor types to get more closely involved with this vital sector – which benefits from the highest levels of public interest and support and which has the characteristic to deliver for industry, the offshore sector and the grid.

It’s now time to shift gears and turn the potential into the tangible.

Scottish Renewables’ Marine Conference & Dinner will bring together key industry players to discuss the cutting-edge developments happening here in Scotland and assess the opportunities and challenges the sector will face in the vital years ahead.

You are invited to engaging conversations about how the environment around investment in marine renewables is rapidly changing. The introduction of a ringfence for tidal technologies within the Contracts for Difference auction has created a buzz around marine technologies and we are seeing more interest in marine investment. The wider Environmental, Social and Governance agenda has also picked up incredible pace which means the opportunities are opening up for gathering investment around our offshore wave and tidal technologies.

In this session we will discuss the changing reflection of the finance markets in relation to the newer technologies that will help support a diverse energy mix to get us to net-zero.
