  • Islands Centre for Net Zero (ICNZ) introduction

The first ‘official’ meeting of the Islands Centre for Net Zero (ICNZ) partners took place recently at the ORIC campus in Stromness, Orkney. Great to get the project planning underway during an intense but fruitful two days of discussions.

ICNZ is a pan-island distributed innovation centre, funded through the Islands Deal, that will support Orkney, Shetland and the Outer Hebrides to become lighthouse communities in the energy transition.

It is being developed by an islands-based consortium, led by EMEC, and including Orkney Islands Council, Shetland Islands Council, Comhairle Nan Eilean Siar, Heriot-Watt University, Aquatera Ltd and Community Energy Scotland.

We’re deep in planning mode at the moment, more to come soon... watch this space!
