The Energy Innovation Emporium 2021 is a webinar series from ETP and Research Innovation Scotland that seeks to inform the global energy community how Scottish R&I can help deliver carbon emission reduction targets, especially around the Paris Agreement’s Nationally Determined Contributors, to encourage collaborative activity between Scottish academia and wider parties.
This event will showcases the marine renewable energy (MRE) research being carried out across MASTS and hear the perspectives of MASTS ecological researchers, industry engineers, and a range of international collaborators.
To support balancing MRE development with the protection of wildlife populations, researchers from the Marine Alliance for Science and Technology Scotland (MASTS) have developed a series of environmental research programmes and have developed new methods to measure wildlife interactions with developments. Key to the success of much of this research has been the successful collaboration between a range of stakeholders with markedly different backgrounds and perspectives. In particular, an understanding of the respective constraints and opportunities experienced by ecologists and engineers has been fundamental to the development of the MRE industry in Scotland.
