Scottish Highlands & Islands Renewable Energy Awards 2021

The second annual Scottish Highlands and Islands Renewable Energy Awards celebrated the very best of the region's green energy sector in a virtual event on Thursday 25th February.

The event showcased the achievements of the sector, while also recognising and rewarding the contribution that renewable energy makes to the Highland and Islands economy and the businesses at the heart of it.

Renewable energy has a long history in the Highlands, and these Awards shine a light on what is being achieved at present, and also what is possible in the future – recognising the excellence and evolution of the sector.

The awards and the Scottish Highlands and Islands Renewable Energy Conference (SHREC) which precedes it, are both supported by leading Scottish law firm Harper Macleod, which founded SHREC in 2010, and Highland News & Media, publisher of the Executive and 18 newspaper titles across the Highlands and north-east Scotland.

Welcome to Virtual SHREC 2021 - watch it now

Harper Macleod's 12th annual Scottish Highlands Renewable Energy Conference (SHREC) provided cause for optimism that Scotland, and the rest of the world, can start 'walking the walk' in taking action on the climate emergency.

Having held the event annually in Inverness since 2010, the pandemic ensured this year would be virtual – allowing for an international line-up of speakers and attendees.

Our conference took place six months before the 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, and in light of that the theme was climate change. It was fitting that the event took stock of Scotland's current state of play on climate change, and plotted a roadmap to a greener, more sustainable economy.

Decarbonisation, renewable energy, biodiversity, looking after our natural capital, investment, future generations … The topics were fundamental to the future direction of the climate emergency and created the most seismic SHREC to date.
