Brexit, Energy and Environment Law Conference with Dundee University: Invite to speak and sponsor debate re RSPB v Scottish Ministers, Mainstream Renewables, SSE, Inch Cape

Renewables After Brexit  conference

1 December 2017 Dundee University

Centre for Energy, Petroleum and Mineral Law & Policy


Dear Sir or Madam,

You/r organisation is invited to consider speaking/ presenting and sponsoring opportunities at this conference, which is being co-organised by the Centre for Energy, Petroleum and Mineral Law & Policy at Dundee University and Scottish Energy News.

In view of the fact that the RSPB appeal against the Mainstream/ Quartet £2bn Scottish offshore wind farm appeal to the UK Supreme Court will still be live on 1 December 2017 – when the Renewables After Brexit conference will be held – the organisers anticipate strong market demand from potential speakers, sponsors and delegates to take part in what is the first conference of this type in the Scottish energy sector.

For details on speaking, sponsoring and booking:


Anne McCall, Director, RSPB Scotland
Anne McCall, Director, RSPB Scotland

RSPB’s feisty first female chief who’s already trumped Trump

Anne McCall became the first female leader in the organisation when she was appointed Director of RSPB in May 2017.

She joined the RSPB in 1998 as a member of the society’s planning team, working on cases like the Lingerbay superquarry, the Lewis windfarm and the inquiry into the Trump golf course in Aberdeenshire.

McCall studied politics, history and law at Edinburgh University before completing a post-graduate course in town planning at Heriot-Watt University. She is an accredited member of the Royal Town Planning Institute and served as Convenor of the RTPI in 2004.

On her appointment she said: I aim to work with other organisations and individuals from across all sectors, through collaboration and partnership, with the ambition of reversing the current downward trajectory for so many of our species and habitats.”

With many thanks
