Since setting up barely 12 months ago, the Solar Trade Association Scotland has got off to a flying start – having secured a commitment to ensure solar power is fully included in the next Scottish government energy strategy.
And STA Scotland is now due to celebrate its ‘first birthday party’ on 15 March in Edinburgh they it holds its conference – Solar in Scotland: The Future and the Opportunity – at Heriot Watt University.
Scottish Energy Minister Fergus Ewing MSP will present his vision for Scottish solar renewable power, while 15 industry speakers will outline the solar opportunities available to the sector.
John Forster, Chairman of Forster Energy and STA Scotland, commented: “We are recommending that Scotland sets a goal of deploying 2GW of solar in Scotland by 2020 – which is a tenfold increase from today.
“Despite the huge challenges from recent UK policy changes, including reductions to the Feed-in Tariff and early closure of the Renewables Obligation, this ambitious target can still be achieved. Attend our event, meet the industry, discover the opportunities, and together we can overcome the barriers to growth.”
Speakers from the following organisations will take part:
- Solar Trade Association (UK)
- Solar Kingdom
- AES Solar
- Viridian Solar
- Lark Energy
- Solar Edge
- Good Energy
