The energy transition is in motion. On a national level the energy landscape is progressing towards Finland’s long-term objective to meet global climate challenges and improve Finnish competitiveness. In Europe the utilisation of the Groningen gas field has given new perspectives to the Dutch energy transition as companies are preparing to switch to alternative energy sources by 2022. Renewable energy sources play a vital role in decarbonising energy systems and followed by the increased use of biogas, new market players are expected to enter the upcoming liberalised market in Finland. Moreover, the regulation concerning the current support schemes for renewable energy is going through significant changes as the new legislative proposal presents a technology-neutral subsidy scheme based on a competitive bidding process with premiums.
What do these actions entail in practice, what lessons have already been learned and what kind of opportunities and challenges should the industries prepare to face? Circular economy is a transition driven by biogas but how does the future of biogas look and how will the industry and policymakers respond to the new market structures? We follow the transition moving forward, but what measures are we preparing for the challenges that lie ahead?
THE ENERGY REGULATION SEMINAR will examine and discuss these themes from an academic, industry and regulatory perspective.
After the seminar Castrén & Snellman Attorneys Ltd would like to invite you to continue the evening with cocktails accompanied by friends and colleagues from around the energy sector.
