Who

Energy Isles is a consortium of 41 mainly Shetland businesses with a strong desire to ensure that the benefits of our emerging new renewable energy sector are retained as far as possible within the isles.

The companies in the consortium are from a wide variety of existing sectors, including crofting, farming, fishing, aquaculture, transport, renewables and support services. Several are based in the North Isles.

Everyone involved in Energy Isles shares the belief that Shetland must maximise the benefits it derives from renewables for the greater good of the local economy and community.

Companies in the Consortium include:

Community Liaison Group:

As a group of local companies, we want this unique development to have a positive and lasting impact on those who live and work in the North Isles and across Shetland. Therefore, we have established the Energy Isles Wind Farm Community Liaison Group (CLG) with members of the Yell, Unst and Fetlar Community Councils. The Liaison Group provides a forum where community representatives can feedback your valued opinions on all aspects of the project and receive updates on the proposed development.
