Highlands And Islands Supply Chain Showcased At All-energy 2022

9th May 2022

All-Energy is back for its 21st anniversary and the first face-to-face event in two years.

In conjunction with Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE), the region's businesses will exhibit on the HI-energy pavilion, which once again will host the largest regional presence at the show.

HIE manages the over-arching HI-energy pavilion on behalf of the region's industry to ensure the area's extensive renewable energy offerings are promoted. This includes its world-leading role in offshore renewables, experienced supply chain and first-class facilities.

HIE's energy team will be available to offer advice and signposting about opportunities in the region across all elements of the renewables industry.

The event is one of the most important of the year for the region’s supply chain companies. It represents an ideal opportunity for companies to meet like-minded people from the renewable energy sector across the globe. There have been many significant milestones in the region’s renewable energy sector since the last in-person event in 2019.

Elain MacRae, head of energy strategy at HIE, said, "There has never been a more thrilling time to be part of the energy transition in the Highlands and Islands. Huge opportunities have been created following the ScotWind offshore wind leasing announcement; there are plans for much increased deployment of onshore wind, new pumped storage hydro projects are on the horizon and exciting progress in the wave and tidal energy sectors have been made as well as really exciting prospects for hydrogen production and export.

"Our ongoing presence at the show reflects the extent of renewables activity taking place in the Highlands and Islands. These include world first projects in community and marine energy, leading expertise in energy engineering and supply chain companies, and world-class port and harbour infrastructure.

"The potential benefits from the sector to a wide variety of businesses across the region are becoming a reality and projects are really taking off."
