Finance Forum

The ADBA Finance Forum is an informal bi-annual meeting of industry leaders, stakeholders and other interested parties focusing on the challenges facing the AD sector in terms of finance, government subsidies - including Feed-in-Tariffs (FITs) and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) - and the priorities for the industry to help prevent the slow-down in growth of small scale AD developments. If you wish to find out more about the Finance Forum and how to get involved, please contact Cheryl Murdoch for more information.
