Two tidal and wave energy developers have been revealed as finalists for Scottish Renewables’ Green Energy Awards 2016.
Scottish tidal energy developer, Nova Innovation, has been shortlisted as one of the 50 finalists running in this year’s Scottish Green Energy Awards.
The company has been nominated for its Shetland Tidal Array in the Engineering Excellence category that awards outstanding design or solution.
To remind, Nova Innovation recently connected the second tidal turbine, as part of Shetland Tidal Array deployed in Bluemull Sound, to the Scottish electricity grid.
Highlands and Islands Enterprise’s subsidiary, established by the Scottish Government to advance the wave energy sector in Scotland, Wave Energy Scotland, has been shortlisted for the Sustainable Development Award.
This award recognizes the outstanding work to ensure the sustainable delivery of a renewables project or initiative.
Niall Stuart, Chief Executive of Scottish Renewables, said: “Once again the Scottish Green Energy Awards shortlist shines a light on the most innovative, forward-thinking and sustainable projects, organisations and individuals in our industry.
“There have been some important projects delivered over the last 12 months and the shortlist shows clearly how our sector is helping grow the economy, tackle climate change and support communities across the country.”
The Scottish Green Energy Awards ceremony will be held at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on December 1, 2016, and is sponsored by EDF Energy Renewables.
