Opinion: Why we must turn our attention to offshore wind

As key members of the offshore wind industry gather in Glasgow this week for the All-Energy Conference, there should be plenty of grounds for optimism. The industry is already delivering on its promises. By 2020 our sector will have delivered 10GW of installed capacity, providing clean and green electricity for 8 million homes. Over £30 billion of private sector capital will have been deployed, supporting thousands of high quality jobs and creating economic activity and opportunity in industrial towns and coastal communities around the country.

All-Energy 2015: There can be no ‘silver bullet’

“You can no longer solve the energy problem by ignoring the environment or solve the environment by ignoring energy.” This was the sentiment of Business Opportunity Manager Bill Spence from Shell Upstream International as he spoke about the oil major’s CCS (Carbon Capture Storage) project at All-Energy 2015. He said there could be “no silver bullet” but that both the UK and Scotland – where the Peterhead Carbon Capture Storage project would be based – had begun to take an important lead. Once completed, it would be the first full-scale CCS project on a gas-based power station.

All-Energy 2015: Event ‘will be back’ in Aberdeen

Cheap hotel prices in Glasgow in early May highlight one of the reasons why the organisers of the UK’s largest green-energy show were so keen to move it from Aberdeen this year. But it could be back in Europe’s energy capital within a few years, thanks to current hotel projects and a major new venue in the city, north-east MSP Lewis Macdonald told the Press & Journal. A check yesterday on a well-known booking website showed rooms in three-star hotels in Glasgow on Tuesday May 5, the eve of All-Energy 2015, and Wednesday, May 6 are available from £45 a night. For those people still needing a room after the event ends on Thursday, May 7, three-star budget accommodation is available for only £35.
