ALIenergy Manager Lynda Mitchell, Business Development Officer Carole Shellcock, and Affordable Warmth Advisor Jenny McLeish kicked off with a presentation showcasing some of ALIenergy’s award winning projects.

These include the innovative ENBIO (Energy and the Bioeconomy) Project with partner Xanthella Ltd, which is developing the innovative use of intermittent locally owned renewable energy generation to produce algal products for use as superfoods or in the aquaculture industry.

ALIenergy also has a team of Affordable Warmth Advisors operating across the whole of Argyll and Bute, available for home visits to assist anyone who is struggling to pay their energy bills.

The group then went on to discuss the various challenges of funding and operating these activities in our rural and island communities.
