Costa Hill, Evie- the site of the world’s first wind turbine which connected to the Grid.
‘Orkney Energy Landscapes’ led by Dan Lee, Archaeology Institute of UHI and Richard Irvine of St Andrew’s University is hoping to record and capture the archaeological fragments of Orkney’s relationship with energy production.
The scientists monitored the bats at 23 windfarms in the UK and compared that with similar locations where there were no turbines.
Wind Turbines like most electro/mechanical devices do need some maintenance. Conventionally once a year.
“Rapid growth in offshore wind power internationally offers great opportunities for Norwegian businesses. “
“we find solar energy and onshore and offshore wind to be the cost optimised cornerstone in a fully decarbonised 2050 energy system.”
A video presentation is available to watch about the proposed Hoy Community Windfarm project.
“Over the last 15 years Orkney has become very successful at participating in EU research and collaboration programmes relating to sustainable energy.” Gareth Davies, Co-Chair of OREF
