Cycling the North Coast 500 for Mental Health

Posted on: October 5th, 2018 by admin No Comments

It’s fair to say that the Airvolution team are pretty keen on bicycles as well as wind turbines.  However one of our team took it to a new level recently by cycling the North Coast 500, a distance of 525 miles in just four days.

Congratulations to our colleague Tom Walker who has just returned from cycling the round trip along the Scottish Highlands coast starting and finishing in Inverness. He covered between 175 – 210 kilometres each day, and climbed 10,440 metres in total (Everest is 8,848m!).  As Tom battled rain, high winds and even a cracked rib after a spill, it was not in vain – over £2,250 has been raised for MIND, the mental health charity.

Well done Tom, congratulations for completing the route and battling on to raise money for a fantastic cause!

 

Scottish Government: Onshore Wind Policy Statement

Posted on: January 5th, 2018 by admin No Comments

The Scottish Government has published its Onshore Wind Policy Statement, which states a continued commitment to the deployment of onshore wind.  This follows publication of the Energy Strategy in December which included a target for 50% of all Scotland’s energy demand to come from renewable energy sources by 2030.

There is huge potential for Scotland to maximise its natural resources to meet its targets, however current UK Government policy does not provide the opportunity for onshore wind to be considered alongside other forms of electricity generation. This needs to urgently change in order for onshore wind in Scotland to reach its full potential, and to maintain the strong economic growth that has developed around the Scottish renewables industry.
