Natural Power’s Director of Levelised Cost of Energy, Neil Douglas, is one of many leading industry speakers at Scotland’s Renewable Future conference.

This is being held at the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation tomorrow (26 May 2016) – just 10 minutes walk up Holyrood Road from the Scottish Parliament.

And just weeks after the 2016 Scottish Parliament election, Scottish Energy News has organised this key event to explore and discuss the future of Scotland’s renewable energy industry.

Chaired by Jeremy Peat, former Chief Economist at the Royal Bank of Scotland, Holyrood MSPs will also take part in the Renewable Energy Question Time session.

In his presentation, Neil Douglas will provide a summary of the wide range of opportunities that exist for wind energy projects to further increase competitiveness, and real-life measures that are available to project investors.

He said last night: “We’re pleased to be speaking at what promises to be an interesting conference at this crucial time in the development of the renewables industry in Scotland.

“I’m looking forward to sharing our perspective on a positive future as the wind industry contemplates and responds to an increasingly cost-competitive market landscape.”

Natural Power underpinned its commitment to supporting the renewable energy industry achieve cost-parity with the appointment of Neil Douglas to the role of Director of Levelised Cost of Energy (LCoE) earlier this year.

The new role was created in response to market dynamics and Natural Power’s long term strategy to support clients in achieving their operational efficiency and competitiveness objectives. 

Does anyone know how many hybrid renewable energy parcs (ie wind and solar) there are in Scotland?
