With the European Commission’s proposal for Euro3.5 billion of investment into carbon capture and storage, offshore wind projects, and gas and electricity interconnection projects.

If the plans go ahead, the construction industry could benefit from a wealth of profitable opportunities.

Building’s Delivering Energy Infrastructure conference, on 24th February 2009 in London will focus on future plans in energy construction, in particular: wind-power new-build, carbon capture and storage, plus plans for nuclear power station versus traditional coal power generation plants.

Speakers from the Department of Energy and Climate Change, the British Wind Energy Association, ARUP, the CCSA, Areva NP, EDF, National Grid and DLA Piper are confirmed to participate in the event.

Delegates will benefit from sessions covering allocation of resources for the construction industry, the impacts of the Planning Bill on infrastructure new-build, the factors influencing investment decisions for contractors and meeting the demand for the expansion of the renewable mix.
