RenewableUK Policy Forums

Policy Forums are member only events designed to help bring RenewableUK members together to hear the latest policy and business news. At these Policy Forum's we will have a panel of senior industry figures taking the temperature on the status of wind, wave and tidal. At each Forum we will be hosting a live debate across the membership on current State of the Industry, and hearing the latest from RenewableUK about its work helping secure an effective market for our members.

To come along to the Policy Forum simply sign up to the Renewables Marketplace free exhibition pass and then come along to the RenewableUK Theatre. Our four Policy Forums take place as follows:
