Developing on-farm renewables

15 February 2010

This event was held on 8 December, 2009, in Forfar. As it was so popular and oversubscribed, two further sessions were held in January and February 2010. 

The morning sessions looked at understanding how renewables work; installing and funding for renewables; what is available; generating returns from renewables. Speakers included Maitland Mackie, the Forestry Commission and Atmos Consulting. The events also included farmers practical perspective of commissioning a 11Kw Gaia wind turbine and looking into further renewable options including hydro and solar on their farm. A farm visit was included in the afternoon.
