Event Details

The Irish-Scottish Links on Energy Study (ISLES) is a major initiative designed to enable the development of interconnected grid networks to enhance the integration of marine and offshore renewable energy between the three ISLES project partner countries (Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland) and with the wider UK.  The second phase of the project is entitled ISLES II ‘Towards Implementation’, and is due to complete in summer 2015. The project is supported under the EU’s INTERREG IVA programme – more information on the project and its background can be found at www.islesproject.eu .

 

As part of their desire to engage with stakeholders on the evolution of ISLES, the projects partners would like to invite you to a seminar to discuss the draft ISLES Spatial Plan and Sustainability Appraisal and the ISLES Business Plan.

 

The seminar offers an opportunity to discuss the draft Spatial Plan which provides locational guidance for offshore grid infrastructure, and the Sustainability Appraisal which assesses the effects on the environment, sea users and communities. You will wish to note that this is currently out to public consultation that closes on the 13th April 2015. There will also be an opportunity for pre-registered participants that want to discuss a particular subject to sign-up for a 15 minute one-to-one discussion with ISLES project representatives.

 

The event is also an opportunity for the consultants developing the ISLES Business Plan (Baringa Partners, Source Low Carbon and Bellenden) to engage with the supply chain for offshore renewable energy and transmission projects.  We want to inform local supply chain representatives about the potential opportunities, learn about capabilities and issues associated with providing goods and services to the sector, and understand more about what guides company decisions to invest and grow.  With ISLES targeting delivery between 2020-2030 we are also keen to learn about sources of innovation and ideas, technologies, and processes that are being developed in each of the ISLES jurisdictions.

 

We would be very pleased if you or a representative could join us on Monday 9 March at the Jurys Inn, 80 Jamaica Street, Glasgow, G1 4QG. As places will be limited we may have to restrict the number of representatives attending from any individual company or organisation. 

 

For planning purposes, it would be helpful if you could please use this page to register as soon as possible if you and or a colleague will be attending.
