The chairman of Shetland Charitable Trust Drew Ratter is in Edinburgh today to give a talk on the Viking Energy wind farm at an event in the Scottish Parliament.
The event, Great Green Danes, was organised by Nordic Horizons, a Scottish group aiming to raise awareness of Nordic political and social models, and the focus of the event is on the island of Samso in Denmark.
In 1997, the community in Samso won a contest to become the country’s showcase for sustainable power, and have since become carbon neutral, and a net exporter of renewable energy. Soren Hermansen from the island is in Edinburgh to share the community’s experiences.
