Researchers from Robert Gordon University (RGU) will help lead an international conference this month examining how North Sea harbours can effectively harness smart energy solutions.

The conference, which will be hosted at Stromness Town Hall on Tuesday, February 25, is being organised as part of European research project e-harbours, in partnership with Heriot-Watt University Orkney Campus. The event will focus on the energy network challenges faced in Orkney and how they can be addressed using the smart energy solutions identified by e-harbours partners in ports across Europe. The event will examine how smart energy systems and electric vehicles can help local electricity grids absorb increasing volumes of renewable energy and  better balance energy demand with increasingly intermittent supply.
