Infinergy sponsors Community Renewables event at Scottish Parliament

Local Energy Scotland, a Scottish consortium dedicated to enabling community and local uptake of renewable energy projects, hosted their Parliamentary Reception "Encouraging Community Renewables” at Holyrood yesterday evening. The event was hosted by MSP Rob Gibson, Convener of the Rural Affairs, Climate Change & Environment Committee and was fully sponsored by Infinergy.

The event was held to celebrate and promote community ownership of renewables in Scotland. Infinergy's Managing Director Esbjorn Wilmar was one of the evening's speakers and said:

"The potential of community ownership is enormous, I have seen the concept grow in Denmark, Germany and The Netherlands. It can bring significant benefits to the Scottish economy and society as a whole. Infinergy is keen to play its part and I am looking forward to working with Local Energy Scotland, the Scottish Government and local communities in delivering this truly exciting opportunity."

This is the second year that Infinergy sponsors an event on community ownership of onshore renewables at Holyrood.
