 Our Next Event

Wednesday 6th December 2017 at 2pm
Blackout!  - Is Scotland at risk?
A talk by Dr Euan Mearns, Editor, Energy Matters
in Siegfried Room, Edinburgh Napier University,
Craiglockhart Campus, Colinton Road, EDINBURGH, EH14 1DJ.
Since 2008, electrical power supply and distribution systems in Scotland and the UK have massively changed due mainly to political changes with the adoption of the 2008 Climate Change Act, without due regard to reliability, cost, safety, and the environment. Reliable and low-cost coal-powered plants are being replaced by intermittent facilities powered by wind and the sun.
This presentation will outline the issue and start to address the key questions is the system robust? Will Scotland experience blackouts?  
Event open to all with no pre-registration required
