Renewable Energy Impact: A Breakfast Briefing

Renewable Energy Impact: A Breakfast Briefing

29 November 2017

The production of renewable energy in Scotland has become a key issue in technical, economic and political terms in recent years. The natural resource base for renewable energy is extensive by European, and even global standards, with the most important potential sources being wind, wave and tide.
 
 In 2015 Scotland generated 59% of its electricity consumption through renewable sources, exceeding the country's goal of 50% renewable energy by 2015. Moving forward, the Scottish Government's energy plan calls for 100% of electricity consumption to be generated through renewable sources by 2020; and 50% of total energy consumption (including transportation) by 2030.
 
 Many parts of Africa are popular locations for the application of renewable energy technology. Currently, several nations have small-scale solar, wind and geothermal devices in operation providing energy to urban and rural populations. These types of energy production are especially useful in remote locations because of the excessive cost of transporting electricity from large-scale power plants. The applications of renewable energy technology have the potential to alleviate many of the problems that face Africans every day, especially if done so in a sustainable manner.

Guest speakers will be talking about opportunities in the renewable sector in Aberdeen, Scotland and globally.
