Renewable Energy - Who Benefits? - Nicholas Gubbins

Published on

Nicholas Gubbins, Chief Executive of Community Energy Scotland, talks about who benefits from renewable energy.



The Whose Economy? seminars, organised by Oxfam Scotland and the University of the West of Scotland, brought together experts to look at recent changes in the Scottish economy and their impact on Scotland's most vulnerable communities.

Held over winter and spring 2010-11 in Edinburgh, Inverness, Glasgow and Stirling, the series posed the question of what economy is being created in Scotland and, specifically, for whom?
