Sustainable Development:

The Energy Transition

In Canning House’s third Sustainable Development series event, we focus on Latin America’s energy transition.

Reimagining our annual Renewables Conference for 2021, we examine top trends in solar, wind and water power, and ask key questions as to how major oil & gas companies are addressing their green ambitions. We also address the role and impact on the consumer, raising questions of affordability, regulations and investment opportunities.

Canning House's Sustainable Development series of events and conferences focuses on the themes of the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the aims of the 2021 UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in a Latin American context. This event addresses SDG #7 Affordable and Clean Energy.

With support from Eversheds Sutherland and the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.

We kindly suggest a donation of £10 for this event.
