The post-Brexit world offers plenty of opportunities for business and export between the EU and the UK. The next EnergyVaasa Talks offers practical Do’s and Dont’s and highlights routes to the UK market.
The UK is in many ways a world leader in environmental issues, being the first country to commit to Net Zero emissions by 2050.
In order to achieve the climate goals, the country’s energy sector needs to reform. This opens up opportunities for Finnish companies with innovative products, solutions and services.
– The Vaasa region is full of companies that can offer energy solutions that the UK needs, says Mari K. Niemi, who moderates the EnergyVaasa Talks webinar on this subject.
– The event is suitable not only for companies in the Vaasa region, but for anyone interested in the UK market, she adds.
Mari K. Niemi has one foot in Finland and the other in the UK. She is known for example as the former director of the research platform InnoLab in Vaasa. Now she lives in Glasgow, Scotland, where she works as Research Director at E2 Research, an organization based in Helsinki.
– I really look forward to leading the EnergyVaasa Talks event from here in Glasgow, which will soon host a major climate conference, says Niemi.
EnergyVaasa Talks is a series of webinars that replaces this year’s EnergyWeek. This new event, called UK Energy Sector – Business Opportunities and Future Outlook, is organized by the UK Department for International Trade (DIT).
The speakers are highly qualified and experienced in international trade. Among them are British Ambassador to Finland Tom Dodd and DIT Head of Sector Victoria Zastava.
The business community is represented by speakers Lauren Luscombe and Jarkko Aro. Luscombe from the UK law firm Burges Salmon has worked a lot on energy infrastructure projects. She also has experience with a variety of innovative technologies, from solar and wind power to battery storage.
Jarkko Aro represents the VEO Group based in Vaasa. Having been over 21 years with the company, Aro is currently the Director of Sales and Operations.
– VEO does a lot of business in the UK, so they can provide many practical insights, says Mari K. Niemi.
– The webinar will also clearly lay out who to contact in order to get started with export, for example, she says.
