SHETLAND’S planned renewable energy conference next month is being inundated with interest from across Europe, according to the organisers.
Dynamic Shetland seeks to attract potential investors into the islands to exploit the wind, wave and tide resources as well as the local engineering and business support available.
Shetland Islands Council marketing projects manager Kevin Moreland said: “We’ve had interest from Denmark, the Netherlands, Ireland, Spain, Norway, Faroes and Sweden but the majority of the visitors have been from the UK.
“We’re down to our last 40 or so available seats, so at this point we would like to encourage anyone who is considering coming to our event to go ahead and register on www.dynamicshetland.co.uk before the opportunity is lost.”
Dynamic Shetland will be based at Lerwick’s Clickimin Leisure Complex on 16 and 17 November, and will include a video introduction from energy minister Fergus Ewing MSP and a presentation by Professor Alex Kemp from Aberdeen University.
