Isles youngster showcases energy project in new video

A 10 year-old boy is poised to become an internet sensation after appearing in a new film about the Lerwick district heating scheme.

Thomas Leask tells the story of the community-wide partnership in a film created for Shetland Heat Energy and Power (Sheap) by local film-makers JJ Jamieson ad Liz Musser.

Supported by Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE), the film will feature in a new HIE campaign called #GoPlaces, which aims to showcase projects developed by community partnerships across the country which bring social and community benefit.

    Lovely but, from what so can gather the cost of KWH is pretty expensive and not sure SHEAP is carbon neutral. Eco-friendly is a very broad church , but not necessary carbon neutral
    Of non- polluting e.g PCB ( polychlorylbi-phenols ) SHEAT requires the production of unnecessary waste – your rubbish.
