The AIX: Power & Renewables 2023 will take place from 1-2 November in London. AIX was set up in 2014 to establish an enduring dialogue for investors and energy industry professionals, with the aim of stimulating business engagement and long- term partnerships.

This year’s programme focusses on linking power markets, the future of wheeling, financing decentralised energy and a data-led discussion on the growth potential of the C&I sector.

Understanding robust regulation as a vital pre-requisite to clean energy investment, GET.transform is thrilled to contribute expert insights to the event:
