Represent your authority at a Local Energy Systems stakeholder workshop
Scottish Enterprise, Scottish Government, HIE, Transport Scotland and SDI have been working together on matters concerning the Local Energy Systems sector in Scotland. This covers electricity, heat, transport and how these sectors integrate in local areas to create an optimised energy system using digital technologies and innovative business models while minimising emissions and consumer costs.
Scottish Enterprise is leading on designing a programme of support for the sector and have established a wider stakeholder group providing valuable input into this process. This stakeholder group is meeting again on the 13th of November and you are invited to join the discussion.
On the day, the UK Energy Systems Catapult will present the local area energy planning tools they have developed. There will be a discussion of the merits of rolling these tools out across Scotland and working to understand what support local authorities might need in order to implement this.
Who should attend?
Local authority officers and professionals with an interest or remit in energy systems, low and zero carbon, planning and policy are invited to attend.
Scottish Government will also be using the workshop as an official consultation event to inform their upcoming Local Energy Systems policy paper (which will impact local area energy planning). Attending will give your local authority an opportunity to directly contribute to shaping government policy in this important area.
The half day event will open at 12:30 with a networking lunch and close at 16:00. An agenda will be sent out closer to the date.
If you would like to attend, please contact Jamie Robinson at Scottish Enterprise on Jamie.firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
