The expanding Scottish Energy Association – which has been joined by seven new corporate members in the past year – is holding its annual Power Scotland conference next month on three key themes: –
- UK Energy Policy: Where Are We Now
- Major Energy Projects

With a plenary panel – including Murdo Fraser, MSP, Convenor of the Energy & Enterprise Committee in Scottish Parliament – the keynote speech on the theme of ‘energy efficiency and the heat policy needed in Scotland’ is due to be given by Lord Redesdale, chief executive of the Energy Managers Association.

The Scottish Energy Association has welcomed the following organisations as new members since its last conference; –

- Shepherd & Wedderburn
- Fraser-Nash Consultancy
- University of Glasgow
- University of the West of Scotland.
Hector Grant, Chief Executive of the Scottish Energy Association, said: “With sessions on policy, major energy projects and new technology the day will be packed with fascinating information and great networking opportunities.
“Why not come and hear how some of those in the industry are going to respond to the government’s long-awaited energy policy ‘Re-set?”’
The conference is being held at the Technology & Innovation Centre, near George Square in Glasgow on 10 March 2016.
