Local energy: Creating energy communities - experiences of Orkney, Scotland. Gareth Davies. Energy World November 2008, P. 16-17

Energy World readers were introduced to the tidal energy prospects for the Pentland Firth, which separates mainland Scotland from Orkney, in the June 2008 issue. Gareth Davies discusses energy initiatives and projects carried out by local communities from these northern islands. As well as large megawatt-scale projects, there have been numerous smaller micro-renewables projects based upon micro-wind turbines, ground source heat pumps, air source heat pumps, biomass heating plants with micro-district heating, bio-digestion, bio-fuel, solar PV projects and low energy house building projects.
