Renewable energy projects: permit-granting processes and Power Purchase Agreements │ Tuesday 29 March │ Online Event

Accelerated deployment of renewable energy sources (RES) plays a central role in achieving the ambitions of the European Green Deal and the European Climate Law. However, lengthy, and complex permit-granting procedures and other administrative barriers slow down RES deployment.

Barriers also hamper the development of renewable power purchase agreements (PPAs), which should become a major driver for increased market-based renewables deployment in the coming years.

In the context of the upcoming EU recommendation and guidance on good practices to improve permit-granting procedures for renewable energy projects and to facilitate PPAs and the ongoing public consultation, the event will bring together EU and national policy-makers, as well as project promoters and stakeholders involved in renewables projects and PPAs, to share their experience and ideas for ways to accelerate the deployment of renewable energy projects.

The event opens with a keynote speech from the Commissioner for Energy, Kadri Simson, followed by a high-level roundtable and two panel discussions structured around the two main topics covered in the guidance :

  • Permit-granting for renewable energy projects
  • Power Purchase Agreements

The agenda will be published soon. For more information and to proceed with your registration, click HERE.
