Visit from Andy MacDonald from the Islay Energy Trust

We had a very interesting afternoon with Mr MacDonald learning about the various renewable energy projects in and around Islay. We watched a slide show and video showing where the proposed Tidal Array for the sound of Islay where 10 sea turbines will be able to create electricity for the whole of Islay! We also discussed wind power, solar energy and hydro power.We learned a lot of interesting facts for our Energy Around Us topic.
