The Island of Eigg “Renewable Energy in ACTION”

This week’s radio 4 programme Costing the Earth described how the people of one of the UK’s most remote Islands had developed a renewable energy plan that now provides the Island with 90% of its energy and in the near future they hope to have 100% sustainability.

Their plan and implementation is creating a blueprint for Islands around the World to create similar renewable energy projects.

If you subscribe to Iplayer the programme is inspirational and you will be well rewarded for your time.

Equally this link will take you to an informative and interesting report on the project.

Scotland and Egg is leading the way with development and implementation of renewable energy projects that can and will be our main source of energy moving forward into the next decade.
