Renewable Energy Update

The renewable energy team have been as busy as ever with various meetings and seminars.

Meeting with Minister for Energy

Renewable Energy PhotoOn 31st October Bruce Stevenson were delighted to host a round table event with key note speaker Fergus Ewing MSP and Minister for Energy at the Scottish Government. The discussion was focused on concerns that London based funders may have with the upcoming Scottish referendum, along with other topics to assist the Minister in understanding and acting upon issues which effect funders and developers having confidence in building new projects in Scotland.

Members of Scottish Government, Scottish Renewables Forum and key Scottish players were invited to what turned out to be an excellent and open meeting.

Orkney Claims Seminar

The Bruce Stevenson Renewable Energy team visited Kirkwall last month, along with Crawfords Loss adjusters and RSA to present a seminar on Renewable Energy Insurance claims. This was primarily focused on wind turbines and where claims can occur and how they would be handled. There was a good turnout from members of the local business and community groups. The trip was finished off with a couple of site visits to Hammars Hill Wind farm and the community turbine in Rousey (including a very choppy ferry crossing for Yvonne Miller of BSIB and Carrie Ann Craig from RSA!).
