A number of local companies are heading to Aberdeen this week to target new business at the UK’s largest renewable energy event.

The All-Energy Exhibition and Conference this year has attracted over 500 countries across the world.  Being held today and tomorrow, it is a key event for Caithness & Sutherland. Businesses seeking opportunities in manufacturing or supply for wind, wave, tidal, hydro and biomass technologies.
Caithness Chamber of Commerce is taking a number of local companies on its stand under the banner of its Invest Caithness initiative – a partnership project funded by Highlands & Islands Enterprise (HIE) and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA).

Chamber chief executive Trudy Morris said:  “Given the area’s on-going work in the energy sector, All Energy is one of the most important events of the calendar for Caithness Chamber members.
“Our stand has been very busy over the past two years, and we expect attendance to be even greater this year.
“Our Invest Caithness brand gives us the opportunity to promote and raise awareness of the key assets and capabilities of the area.
“We will be sharing the space with local companies such as EnergyHunt, Mowat Technical Design Services & Caledonia Green Innovation, Scrabster Harbour Trust, Ignis Energy, Wick Harbour Authority and New Park Ltd as well as carrying information on a range of other local businesses.”
A number of local companies will also be taking their own All Energy exhibition space.  These include Thurso’s Environmental Research Centre with the University of the Highlands & Islands and Scrabster harbour with the Port Services Group.
