Biomass, Wind, Solar PV
Alastair Laing – Logie Estate, Forres, IV36 2QN
Alastair Laing hosted the first Renewable Development Initiative event in Moray. The open day featured his woodchip fuelled district heating scheme built at Logie Steading as well as looking at two wind projects - one an entirely self-funded 50kW turbine, the other a Joint Venture with a wind developer on a 27MW wind farm. The day started with a talk by Alastair Laing on why he has chosen these projects and his future plans for Logie. We then had workshops from those involved with the wind projects as well as experts on hand to demonstrate and discuss biomass and Solar PV technology. This was an exciting opportunity to see several technologies at one location. It also provided a unique insight into the Joint Venture arrangement for the large wind project and how farmers and land managers can work in partnership with wind developers.
