Renewable energy event

A FREE local event has been organised to showcase renewable energy and energy efficiency options for homes, small businesses and the farming community.

Angus Council, Angus College and the University of Abertay, Dundee are working together to organise the free Renewable Energy Showcase event, supported by the East of Scotland Rural Supply Chain Project, on Saturday, April 27.

The council’s spokesperson on economic development, Councillor Mairi Evans, said: “The increasing costs of oil and electricity, combined with the Scottish Government’s commitment to reduce energy and carbon commitments are key drivers for businesses and local communities to consider their energy usage on a day to day basis.

“I am delighted that the council has joined forces with Angus College and the University of Abertay, to bring this event to Angus, and I hope that businesses and individuals will come along on the day and learn about the steps they can take to save the environment and money.”

Experts and installers of a range of renewable technologies will be on hand at the event to discuss the costs and benefits of the systems available and answer questions. 

The event takes place at Forfar Mart, on Saturday, April 27, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. with over 20 organisations exhibiting at the event.

There are still free exhibition stand spaces available, if you are interested please contact Robert Crow on 01382 308738.
