Union branch learns about green futures
The north-east branch of NFU Scotland (NFUS) hosted a special energy event at the Lochter Activity Centre near Oldmeldrum.
A range of speakers took to the stage to discuss renewable energy production and storage.
One of the speakers, Water Fuel Engineering managing director Angel Nenov, explained how a vehicle can be modified to use hydrogen technology and reduce emissions by 80% and improve fuel efficiency by up to 20%.
Other speakers included Nigel Holmes from the Hydrogen Fuel
Cell Association, Andrew McGowan from Absolute Solar & Wind Limited, and Jim Bisset from Hydro Genie.
Gerry Stephens from north-east ice-cream maker Mackie’s gave an overview of the company’s renewable energy projects.
“With ambitious climate change targets high up on the political agenda, there are potential opportunities here to try to help ourselves mitigate emissions, save money and be greener,” said NFUS north-east renewables co-ordinator Davie Smith.
