Women in Renewable Energy Scotland: How we succeeded together
Close the Gap secured a grant from Big Lottery to develop WiRES, and deliver a year’s worth of intensive activity. WiRES created a programme of networking events, hearing inspiring renewable energy leaders in the Scottish Parliament, Glasgow Science Centre, and a host of local spaces around Scotland. It held technical skills events at renewable energy sites at Whitelee Windfarm, Gask Farm Biogas Plant, Pelamis Wave Power, and The Hydrogen Office. WiRES brought in mentoring expertise from Women’s Enterprise Scotland to create a mentoring programme, which ran from July 2014 until January 2015.
