AEA Knowledge Leader, Colin McNaught, has been invited to present at two sessions during this year’s All-Energy conference taking place in Aberdeen on 23 and 24 May.
Held annually since 2001, the All-Energy Exhibition & Conference is the UK's largest event devoted to all forms of clean and renewable energy. Colin returns to the conference this year to present at two separate sessions.
On 23 May, he joins a high profile panel to discuss the way forward for microgeneration and on-site renewables. The session is being led by Gaynor Hartnell, Chief Executive of the Renewable Energy Association (REA) and Colin will be drawing on his considerable knowledge of the UK microgeneration sector as the author of AEA’s Microgeneration Index, which tracked the uptake of microgeneration during the first year of the Feed-in Tariff.
On 24 May, he joins a session organised by the Industrial & Power Association (IPA). With ambitious renewable energy and climate change targets to meet, and with Scotland generating the bulk of UK’s renewable energy supply, this session discusses the challenges to overcome to ensure security of supply at affordable cost to the consumer in an uncertain economic climate across the broad church of energy technologies. Colin will be focussing on ‘The role of CHP & waste to energy in Scotland’.
Colin has over 20 years of experience in the energy field covering economic, technical and policy studies across a wide range of technologies and techniques. In addition to the studies being presented at All-Energy, he was Project Manager for the Scottish Energy Study, a review of energy supply and demand in Scotland, creating the first consistent dataset on energy in Scotland for over 10 years. His recent work includes assessments of carbon saving potential for a number of businesses and local authorities, identifying microgeneration and energy efficiency opportunities.
