A Memorandum of Understanding, between SDI (Scottish Development International) and Incheon Metropolitan City was signed in South Korea today. The MoU is intended to foster knowledge sharing, ideas and technology for the development of marine energy industries while also creating a new market for Scottish tidal energy companies to export products and services.
The Port of Ardersier has submitted plans to the Highland Council, Marine Scotland and Transport Scotland for consents needed to make the site a major European manufacturing port for the offshore wind industry. A renewables jobs boom could result in the Highlands if plans to turn the Port of Ardersier into a manufacturing ‘super-hub’ for offshore wind turbines get the go-ahead.
Intersolar Europe is supported by the leading solar industry associations: the German Solar Industry Association (BSW-Solar), the German Solar Energy Society (DGS), the European Solar Thermal Industry Federation (ESTIF), the International Solar Energy Society (ISES), the SEMI PV Group, and VDMA-PV, the platform for photovoltaic production equipment within the German Engineering Association.with the support of the European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA).
Any windfarm planner would be well advised to access three Scottish Natural Heritage publications that make clear how to avoid bird rich feeding areas. But if they keep their cameras handy, they may even win the SNH photographic competition.
