Solar Power & Energy Storage @   7 Bristo Square Conference Room,  University of Edinburgh  | Scotland | United Kingdom

What energy source will power our vehicles in 2050? How will Renewables be integrated into new housing developments? Where will Energy Storage best be located? How has the Edinburgh Community Solar Co-op fared in its first year of operation?

Come and hear how Renewable Energy technologies are eclipsing fossil fuels and – as price of both PhotoVoltaic Solar Panels and Wind Turbines comes down and capacity increases – this ushers in a new era of distributed energy. Our speakers will introduce the topics and then we will explore all aspects of the emerging questions.

  • Robert Murphy, Edinburgh College Electric Vehicle Project
  • Jestyn Davis, Moray Estates Garden District Project
  • Speaker on emerging Energy Storage technologies and
  • Richard Witney, Edinburgh Community Solar Cooperative.
