“We’re delighted to tell you that our inaugural Scottish Highland Renewable Energy Conference (SHREC), held recently in Inverness, was a great success, with key industry experts delivering advice and information to more than 200 land owners, developers, professional advisors and local community members. The event reinforced to us all that we need more information on the Renewables sector and more networking opportunities if we are to meet government targets and generate local income. As a result of delegate and industry feedback, we’re pleased to tell you that we’ve already started planning the second SHREC event, to be held on the 7th April 2011 at the Drumossie Hotel, Inverness.
As a leading advisor in the Renewables sector, we organised SHREC to give encouragement and advice to people involved with, or wanting to enter, the sector. Topics such as funding, grid connectivity and tax and accounting issues were covered, and an overview of the Scottish Renewables industry was given by one of our lead partners, David Bone.

Chairman Lorne Crerar says, “The feedback we have received is that it was a much needed and well-received event that provided valuable insight, inspiration and food for thought. Harper Macleod has provided sound legal advice for many years to operators in the energy and Renewables sector and we will continue to organise events like SHREC in order to best serve our clients and the industry.”
