Young Scots compete in energy trilemma event

Three teams of Scots youngsters (pictured) will tomorrow (20 Sept 2017) compete to devise new solutions to the energy trilemma at the Venture-fest event at Glasgow Science Centre, where Chris Stark, the Scot-Govt’s head of energy is one of the judges.

Meanwhile, a new task-force of finance experts to accelerate investment in clean growth by building on the UK’s strength in green finance has been set up by the Brit-Govt.

Climate change minister Claire Perry, MP, announced the new move at the opening of Climate Week in New York.

Chaired by Sir Roger Gifford, a former Lord Provost of London, the task force has been given six months to come up with ambitious proposals to speed-up investment in the transition to a low carbon economy, creating high-value jobs and new business opportunities.

Green finance includes private sector investments in technologies, infrastructure and innovative start-ups that can create jobs and allow businesses to expand, boosting economic growth while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
