Climate Change, Renewables and The Humber Energy Estuary

Thursday, 22 September 2016 at 9:30AM - 4:00PM
The Guildhall, Hull HU1 2AA
RTPI Yorkshire

Hull artists impressionWith a new Government in place, world leaders ratifying the Paris agreement on climate change last week and doubts over the future of UK nuclear power, come and hear former Deputy Prime Minister Lord (John) Prescott, Chair of the Humber LEP Lord (Chris) Haskins, David Hardy and others at this important conference on energy generation.

Alex Codd, Hull City Council’s City Planning Manager:

“We are delighted to welcome the RTPI, the Lords Prescott and Haskins and all delegates to Hull. Alternative energy generation is a fundamental part of securing the needed boost to the economy of Hull and the Humber estuary. This conference is a landmark event in recognition of pivotal role that Hull plays in the UK energy generation sector.”

Phil Crabtree, Chair of RTPI Yorkshire:

“The RTPI in Yorkshire is proud to present this important conference and in being able to bring together political, business, academic and legal opinion on this fundamental topic. We have bought this conference to Hull in recognition of the importance that it already plays in the UK energy sector and of the fundamental importance that planners in the UK play in securing long-term sustainable energy needs of the country.”

The Earth's climate continues to change along with Government policy in this vital area. The Humber is fast becoming the UK's centre of excellence for offshore wind turbine manufacturing and is embracing many other forms of energy generation.  This conference explores the economic and planning opportunities and pressing challenges faced with both climate change and renewable energy generation.
