Lately we have been talking about some European countries which are currently hardly pushing ahead with improving the use of renewable energy systems all around them. El Hierro 100% Renewable project in Spain or Denmark decision of becoming independent of fossil fuels by 2050 are clearly going on with this way of thinking.

Scotland is another precise example of how things can be done in a very different way regarding renewable energies, environmental sustainability, energy efficient and energy savings. The huge natural resources of the country and the immense potential of the region have been taking into consideration to use them as a force that will lead the country to be a leader within a 100% renewable future.

And one of the renewable sectors that are experiencing a huge improvement nowadays is the Offshore Wind, greatly aided with more investments in research, development and deployment of new and innovative technologies and systems.

Now for everybody interested in the renewable field, from professionals, researchers and stakeholders to policymakers, industry consumers and small end consumers, a conference on Offshore Wind Energy has been set in Aberdeen. Various plenary sessions and workshops will address a range of critically important issues from technological innovation and connecting to the grid to attracting capital and affordability, among others.

This event, Offshore Wind & Supply Chain, conference and networking exhibition, will run from 31 January 2012 to 1 February 2012.
