Renewables: Health, Safety and Sustainability 2021 Conference:
The use of renewable energy sources has dramatically increased over the last year - in the UK alone renewables has overtaken fossil fuels as the top source of electricity, with solar, wind, biomass and hydropower making up nearly 50% of the energy mix. Internationally, renewables have also expanded exponentially and will continue to do so, as lower prices mean that there's less barriers to ramp up their usage in the fight against climate change.
The key challenge facing the renewables industry going forward is to continue this growth on a fast-paced and large scale, whilst ensuring that health, safety and sustainability practices are not compromised.
Organisations will need to work hard to improve and maintain their health and safety performance, and ensure renewables are sustainable. This involves understanding the risks to workers, the wider public, the plants, and the environment, as well as assessing the long-term sustainability of different renewable technologies.
This conference will showcase best practice from across the globe and explore the latest research and guidance on building renewables. Technologies covered include solar, energy storage, onshore/offshore wind and energy from waste.
The climate emergency means that organisations cannot afford to be hesitant in replacing traditional forms of energy with renewables, therefore having robust health, safety and sustainability practices in place now is essential.
