Shepherd and Wedderburn joins impressive speaker line-up at All-Energy 2016
Leading UK law firm, Shepherd and Wedderburn supports All-Energy as headline sponsor for the second year running. Billed as the UK’s largest renewable energy event, All-Energy returns to Glasgow’s Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre on 4-5 May.
With extensive experience advising key industry players across the spectrum of renewable energy projects, members of Shepherd and Wedderburn’s 90+ strong Energy and Natural Resources team will feature strongly in this year’s seminar and conference programme.
Clare Foster, partner and Head of Clean Energy Projects at the firm, commented: "All-Energy’s conference and seminar programme has something for everyone and is a fantastic platform for us to showcase expertise from across our firm. I, along with a number of my colleagues, am looking forward to being part of the impressive speaker line-up and exchanging views with others immersed in the sector."
Over the past eighteen months, Clare has worked with Green Investment Bank (GIB) to develop and deploy their Green Loan, a low, fixed-rate financial arrangement, designed to finance public sector energy efficiency projects. Following in the footsteps of pathfinder projects in Glasgow and Southend-on-Sea, Clare’s team most recently advised GIB in relation to its latest Green Loan to Stirling Council, the third council in the UK to take out a GIB Green Loan to replace its inefficient and costly lighting estate with modern, energy efficient lighting.
Her experience makes Clare the ideal choice to chair each of All-Energy’s “Sustainable cities - a year on from All-Energy 2015; how green are we?” sessions. She will be joined by a variety of speakers who are active in the sector including Iain Watson, Director at Green Investment Bank (GIB) and her colleague, Craig Nicolson, a solicitor at Shepherd and Wedderburn, in delivering topical presentations focused on the public and private sector.
