Cost competitive wind is Scotland's renewable future

Neil Douglas speaks at the Scotand's Renewable Future conference tomorrow in Edinburgh.

Natural Power's Director of Levelised Cost of Energy, Neil Douglas, is set to speak at the forthcoming Scotland's Renewable Future conference at the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation on Thursday 26th May 2016.


Just weeks after the 2016 Scottish Parliament election, Scottish Energy News hosts this one day event for key industry players to explore and discuss the future of Scotland's renewable energy industry.

Neil Douglas said: "We're pleased to be speaking at what promises to be an interesting conference at this crucial time in the development of the renewables industry in Scotland. I look forward to sharing our perspective on a positive future as the wind industry contemplates and responds to an increasingly cost-competitive market landscape."

During his presentation, Neil will provide a summary of the wide range of opportunities that exist for wind energy projects to further increase competitiveness, and real-life measures that are available to project investors.

Natural Power underpinned its commitment to supporting the renewable energy industry achieve cost parity with the appointment of Neil Douglas to the role of Director of Levelised Cost of Energy (LCoE) earlier this year. The new role was created in response to market dynamics and Natural Power's long term strategy to support clients in achieving their operational efficiency and competitiveness objectives.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
