FREED Partner meeting explores exciting opportunities in Energy Innovation
08 Jun 2016
Second FREED Partner Meeting held in Scotland
The FREED Partners met in sunny Strathpeffer for the second partner meeting on 6th June, having completed an earlier joint meeting with the GREBE project. The partner meeting took place on the 7th June and covered a lot of ground.
The partners discussed the energy innovations which will be the focus of the project. Exciting developments in energy storage, energy funding models, and the use of energy in water were all to the fore.
But the leading idea proposed by the Scottish partner is a Wave Energy International Network. This reflects the programme mounted by Highlands & Islands Enterprise, Wave Energy Scotland, which will help to create the new network.
The GREBE partners and FREED partners earlier all agreed there is mutual benefit in collaboration. The plans were made for aligning the projects in the most effective way.
The meeting came to a close on the morning of the 8th June, with an agreement to meet again on 11th/12th October in Galway, Ireland, to be hosted by Western Development Commission.
