Shetland promotes marine energy map

Shetland promotes marine energy map
Shetland is looking to promote its wave and tidal energy resources at a renewables conference in Aberdeen, using a detailed map of its marine energy sources.

First released in March, the map was intended to fill in gaps about the region's available tidal and wave sources and provide developers with information of the most promising sites for development.

Josie Simpson, chairman of the Shetland Islands Development Committee, said: "Shetland has a huge untapped marine energy resource. Finding ways to exploit this resource sustainably is very important for Shetland's future prosperity."

The map was created using data collection and modelling and forms part of the marine atlas of the Shetland Islands Marine Spatial Plan.

Developers can use the marine atlas to view existing constraints, designations and the interactivity between users to marine resources to take into consideration when planning their projects.

The information will now be on display at the All Energy 2011 event in Aberdeen.

Earlier this year, Low Carbon Shetland also received £800,000 from the European Regional Development Fund to create a thermal storage system. In total, £18 million was awarded to projects in Scotland's Highlands and Islands.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800534498-ADNFCR
