5th Renewable Power Generation Conference

September 21 to 23, 2016 - London, UK

Closely aligned to the IET Renewable Power Generation (RPG) Journal, the conference scope brings together the topics of renewable energy technology, power generation and systems integration with techno-economic issues.

This friendly international conference returns to the UK after five years, having travelled to Beijing and Naples in between.

The technical scope has been revised for 2016 to ensure it addresses the challenges and issues faced by the renewables industry across the globe.

The new chair, Mike O’Hare, General Manager of London Array, operator of the world’s largest operational offshore wind farm, will ensure the conference is more relevant than ever to those seeking technological solutions to problems encountered in this growing sector.

The two-day conference offers technical sessions in the following categories:
