Small Scale Renewables:getting the best fit for your scheme

A half day seminar at 9.30 to 12.30 on Wednesday 30 November 2011

Malone House, Barnett Demesne, Belfast

The aim of the seminar is to review the current state of play relating to small scale renewables. What are the key technologies? Where is policy at? What are the opportunities? What are the planning restraints?

To understand what these and other key issues actually mean at the design stage, RSUA is offering this seminar. As this is a half day programme there will not be sufficient time to cover all of the renewable technologies in detail and a basic working knowledge of the main technologies will be assumed i.e. wind, solar, Photovoltaic (PV), hydro, ground source heat.
