We hosted our annual renewable energy seminar in the Deloitte Academy on Thursday 8 May 2008. During the seminar, Roman Webber, Head of our UK Renewable Energy Group, conducted a survey to gauge the views of delegates on a number of pertinent industry issues. The results of the survey, along with our commentary, are provided in our publication Full power ahead?

The publication of the EU’s renewable energy targets poses some tough questions for governments and a number of choices for investors. Despite the different characteristics of individual country markets, it is clear that investors are looking at Europe as a whole when they are evaluating opportunities in this space. A number of questions are being asked by business and were addressed from the perspective of key players in the industry during the seminar.

  • How long will Europe’s transition from ‘old’ to ‘new’ energy sources take?
  • What is the impact of EU economic growth and global commodity prices on the pace of change?
  • Which areas in Europe offer the best opportunities for renewable energy and why?
  • What is the impact of the EU ETS and European renewable energy incentives on investments?
  • How is the credit crunch impacting investment?
  • How are companies managing their supply chain for renewable energy businesses?
  • What influence are players such as infrastructure funds and European utilities having on the market?
