Al Gore to address Scottish energy conference
Al Gore, the former US Vice-President, will address the Scottish Low Carbon Conference in Edinburgh this week as one of the keynote speakers. He will be appearing on Wednesday.
Some of Europe’s leading energy films will be in attendance, as well as India’s energy minister. Jean-Michel Aubertin of Doosan Power Systems and Mitsubishi’s Akio Fukui will also be at the event.
The cheif executive of Scottish Enterprise, Lena Wilson, explained,
“The transition towards a low carbon economy is of huge importance to Scotland, bringing with it new jobs, investment, greater energy security and significant environmental benefits. We have come a long way since the inaugural conference last year, welcoming new inward investors, developing our renewables supply chain and enhancing our business environment, both physically and financially, to support the growing renewables sector.”
Following the event, including Al Gore’s keynote speech, Alex Salmond will be opening a new £14m offshort wind technology centre in Bellshill, North Lanarkshire, in a bid to step further towards a greener energy source.
