Energy Seminar

On Friday 1st September the Borders Energy Agency is hosting a free networking event to consider progress with renewable energy projects across the Scottish Borders.

A number of exciting initiatives have been delivered across the Borders in recent years. Changes in Government subsidy and wider economic issues have impacted the development of projects at all scales.  However, significant opportunities still exist for renewables generation in rural South Scotland.

If you are interested in hearing more about local initiatives or if you are involved in developing a project, then please come along to this free network meeting and find out more.
