This year’s EU Sustainable Energy Week will take place from 18 – 22 June in Brussels and, to mark the occasion, a variety of specialist events for Scottish businesses focusing on sustainable energy solutions will get underway at Scotland House.
Energy solutions in rural mountain areas will take place on Tuesday 19 June and examine the interface between agriculture and energy; multilevel governance in rural areas; and technological energy solutions for rural communities.
This is an informal event looking to encourage the sharing of information on rural energy in Europe, and provide the opportunity to develop local energy projects.
The following day will play host to two events around energy infrastructure issues in the context of the Good Practice Wind project. A morning seminar will look at environmental assessment in energy infrastructure development, while an afternoon session will focus on presenting the results of the GP Wind project and discussing their implications for the future EU policy approach.
On Thursday 21 June, Scotland Europa, together with its partner regions in the ERRIN network, will host a conference exploring novel approaches to financing and business models, and technological innovation for the development of clean energy technologies. Implementation and Financing of Innovative Low Carbon Projects: Lessons Learned will include presentations by ERRIN member regions sharing experiences on securing investment for local carbon projects.
