Wind - Blade - Grid

Start Date:26 May 11 

Wind - Blade - Grid

Thursday, 26th May 2011, 09:30–16:00
Scottish Enterprise Technology Park, East Kilbride

Seminar overview
Wind: Discover why proven technology is key to Scotland’s low carbon economy. By 2020, the Low Carbon Economic Strategy shows there could be 130,000 jobs in Scotland's low carbon economy – a doubling of current jobs. Of this, the offshore wind industry could support up to 28,000 directly related jobs as well as a further 20,000 indirect jobs, generating up to £7.1 billion for the Scottish economy by 2020.

Blade: Learn how you can apply proven technology to capitalise on Scotland's low carbon economy. From the placement of the maximum number of turbines in a given area, to optimising the shape of the blade itself, ensuring maximum operating capacity, reducing transmission losses, and validating structural integrity of new designs to enable innovation to reach the market in the shortest time.

Grid: Hear from leading companies who apply proven technology and capitalise on Scotland's low carbon economy. "Onshore wind has been the world's fastest growing renewable energy source since 2003. This technology is now established as a mature, clean source of energy, playing a vital role in energy production across Scotland."

We would like to invite you to join us for this event.
