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.
Our panel of speakers will discuss opportunities in the renewable sector in Aberdeen, Scotland and globally. Speakers from Aberdeen Renewable energy Group (AREG) will focus on the supply chain opportunities in this region for the renewables industry.
Pale Blue Dot will look at how we are moving from fossil to renewable fuels and therefore the future of renewables Scotland-wide. They will debate what the SME supply chain in Scotland needs to do to address renewables in the future.
Wood will highlight the importance of Aberdeen as a centre of excellence for renewables, and how this can be transferred internationally, with a particular focus on Africa.
Many parts of the developing world, such as 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.
