About this talk

Increasing commitment to ‘Net Zero’ by 2050 calls for acceleration in the deployment of renewables and manufacturing of electric vehicles. Wind and solar capacity, however, does not provide the flexibility required for optimal functioning of the European energy market. It’s not surprising, therefore, that discussion about investment in batteries – as the only scalable, low carbon flexibility solution - dominates the market. But is the system requirement for flexibility enough to make an investment in batteries attractive? - What is the role of policy? - How renewable portfolios can drive investment in batteries? - What are the key challenges for battery valuation? - What risks investors are taking? These and many other questions will be discussed by our excellent panel: Adrian Barnes - Senior Manager, Green Transition, Green Investment Group Gautam Kalghatgi - Visiting Professor - University of Oxford Dr Stefan Ulreich - Professor - Bilberach University of Applied Science Dr Susann Funke - Managing Director and Lawyer - Funke Advisory Moderated by Dana Hanby - Managing Director - ESG Nexus Gautam Kalghatgi - Visiting Professor, University of Oxford
