GSC Grays are hosting a seminar on 8th December 2011, which offers a rare opportunity for farmers and landowners in the region to get the latest update on Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) Reform combined with a comprehensive insight into the available options for the renewable energy sector and the financing of associated projects, from an exceptional line-up of key national and regional speakers, all highly qualified in their particular field.
