SR Marine Conference, Exhibition & Dinner 2019

Scotland’s wave and tidal industries continue to push the boundaries of technology and project development, with devices and projects continually breaking records. Our global lead is clear; more wave and tidal devices have been deployed in Scotland’s Highlands and Islands than in the rest of the world combined.

With that comes not just centres of excellence, as in Orkney, but a dispersed set of benefits across our geographies: jobs created, vibrant academic centres and of course clean energy delivery. The continued lack of a viable route to market puts all of this in jeopardy.

The Scottish Government has announced funding to continue the Warmer Homes Scotland initiative until 2022.

Warmer Homes Scotland is designed to help vulnerable people make their homes warmer and more comfortable by installing a range of energy saving measures such as new heating systems and insulation.

Since the initiative launched in 2015, thousands of people have been helped to become warmer in their homes, with households saving an average of over £300 a year on their energy bills.

Switched on Scotland

Energy Saving Trust, supported by Transport Scotland, invite you to attend their first Switched on Scotland conference at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh on Wednesday 13 March. 

Michael Matheson MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity will be delivering an address to delegates focusing on electrification of the road network.

The conference is free to attend and will bring together a diverse mix of individuals and organisations who are leading the charge in ultra-low emission vehicle (ULEV) innovation and application in Scotland.

The Scottish Government's Community and Renewable Energy Scheme (CARES) is open for applications, with a funding pot of up to £5 million available to enable locally owned renewable energy projects.
