Highlands and Islands Green Energy Conference


How will the Highlands and Islands impact on developing Scotland as a Global Green Energy leader?

Scotland has set itself a tough target of hitting net-zero targets by 2045, five years ahead of the rest of the UK.

Energy transition from oil and gas to renewables is already underway, but can Scotland become a world-leader in this sector? What role does the Highlands and Islands play in achieving that goal and what practical steps are needed to ensure is it achievable? Join our experts in a focused debate on the challenges and opportunities for H&I as Scotland aims to position itself as a global leader in green energy transition.

Scotsman Conferences bring this new LIVE event to the heart of the Highlands and Islands, promoting the discussion to the wider audiences through our extensive media framework.
