CARES 0012

The 2017 Community and Renewable Energy Scheme (CARES) Conference is back.

The theme for this year's must-attend gathering is the Scottish Government's Energy Strategy consultation and how community energy can be a key player in Scotland's energy future.

We've designed the agenda to allow delegates to choose to attend on one or both days.

Day one

  • Paul Wheelhouse, the Scottish Government's Minister for Business, Innovation and Energy will be delivering our keynote speech. 
  • Look at Scotland's Energy Strategy with a local focus.
  • Find out more about the specifics of the strategy in our breakout sessions. 
  • Take part in a discussion with an industry-expert panel, including Chris Stark, the Scottish Government's Director of Energy and Climate Change
  • Network at our free Conference Dinner, sponsored by SSEN. 

Day two

  • Find out how to deliver local energy projects with Scottish Government support in our engaging workshop sessions.
  • Explore topics that concern you in more depth, including finance, technical issues, project management and a range of other subjects.
