  • Good morning/afternoon. It is a pleasure to be back in Beijing on what is now my third visit to China. I would like to thank Professor Zhi Yang, Renmin University of China and Renmin’s corporate supporters for inviting me back to your wonderful country.
  • My name is Andrew Mitchell and I work for the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation in the United Kingdom. The Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation is a physical Innovation Centre for low carbon economic activity, an initiative that supports Small and Medium Enterprises to develop, grow and create new products and services; and we are a ‘hub’ bringing together policy makers, academics, industry leaders, entrepreneurs and investors all striving to deliver Scotland’s ambitious goals for reducing Green House Gas emissions; including the generation of electricity, power and heat from renewable sources; and providing thought leadership on delivering energy security. My desired outcome of this short talk is to convince you that Scotland is an important global centre that can help China and other countries and regions deliver their low carbon economy, building on Scotland’s long history of innovation, through our strong capabilities in global finance and through our proven global leadership in the hydrocarbon economy. I’d like you to think of Scotland as a both a “live marketplace” and a “living laboratory” for renewables, low carbon technologies and the implementation of ambitious policy.

  • Scotland has a long history of innovation. For example the invention of colour photography, the pneumatic tyre, radar, logarithms, MRI body scanners, the first cloned mammal, television, Universal Standard Time and the Bank of England. The list could go on and on. Something the Scots didn’t invent was Whisky. Whisky is a Chinese invention!   In the 18 th Century during what is known as the “Scottish Enlightenment” there were a vast number of intellectual and scientific breakthroughs in areas such as philosophy, political economy, engineering, architecture, medicine, geology, archaeology, law, agriculture, chemistry and sociology. This laid the foundations for our modern economy today; and along the way made the industrial revolution possible, bringing us prosperity, rapid global transportation, connectivity and communication. But the industrial revolution and subsequent growth in the 20 th Century also gave us severe global challenges with population growth, poverty and hunger, health, security, education and of course critical and urgent environmental challenges.   All this historical innovation in Scotland is all very good and interesting. But what have we done in more recent times?   I like to think of the low carbon economy as being Scotland’s second period of Enlightenment; and that as a tiny nation of 5 million people we can significantly contribute to the global economy and community as we did in the 17 th , 18 th , 19 th and 20 th Centuries, this time with clean and green growth.
  • Perhaps a good link between innovations of old and innovations of new is the invention in 1974 of wave-powered electricity generation by University of Edinburgh engineer Professor Stephen Salter.
  • This brings me on to why is Scotland an exciting place to invest in low carbon activity? I’d like to suggest five reasons.   One. The natural resources of Scotland: Scotland has an estimated potential 36.5 GW of wind and 7.5 GW of tidal power, 25% of the estimated total capacity for the European Union and up to 14 GW of wave power potential, 10% of EU capacity. This is why the Spanish and Portuguese partnership, Moray Offshore Renewables Ltd, is investing 45 Billion Yuan in Scotland to create what the envisage to be the world’s largest offshore wind farm.   Two. A well established supply chain and skills base in the hydrocarbon economy – the second most significant region after Houston USA – which is highly transferrable to low carbon despite some views to the contrary (for example accountancy, health and safety and logistics skills are highly transferable).   Three. Ambitious public policy: 100 per cent of annual electricity consumption by 2020 and 11 per cent of Scotland's heat demand by 2020 will come from renewable sources.   Four. Scotland is a science and technology powerhouse: ground-breaking programmes such as the Engineering Technology Partnership driven by the University of Strathclyde (leading Energy R&D investment in excess of £300 million) and expertise at Edinburgh in areas such as: marine renewable energy, carbon capture and storage, power generation and distribution, carbon management and carbon finance, with the world’s first Masters of Science Degree in Carbon Finance.   I have a handout in Chinese language summarising the University of Edinburgh’s low-carbon capabilities and technologies.   Five. A track record of commercialsation from universities and a long history of supporting the Oil & Gas industry at universities such as Robert Gordon in Aberdeen and Heriot Watt in Edinburgh. Spin-out companies from Edinburgh include ENDS Carbon, who do carbon benchmarking and reporting, NGenTec who do direct drive and magnetic generators for wind turbines, MTEM (the largest ever spinout from a Scottish university) sold to Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) for £138 million in 2007; and underlying technologies for Pelamis Wave Power, Aquamarine Power and Artemis Intelligent Power, the later acquired as part of Mitsubishi’s £100M investment in a 'green energy hub' in Edinburgh.
  • One last reason Scotland is exciting at present that I would like to leave you with.   Policy makers and large industry can make a certain amount of progress towards the low-carbon economy – but I have a belief it will be entrepreneurs who will make the big game changing progress required.   And there’s a real entrepreneurial hunger in Scotland right now.   Last month I hosted the Corporate Venturing arm of a Japanese heavy-engineering conglomerate in Scotland; and we visited three of the key companies in Scotland demonstrating and delivering energy from wave power systems:   AWS Ocean Aquamarine Power Pelamis Wave Power   All three companies are taking different technological approaches and all three have different business models.   All three are pressured by cash flow, technological challenges and good amount of industrial paranoia, in the spirit of Intel’s Andy Grove, only the paranoid survive.   Personally I think there is space for them ALL to succeed. And I mean space in terms of geographic space, technological solutions and in terms of customer demand.   So in summary Scotland is the place to invest due to natural resources, energy industry heritage, ambitious policy and world leading science and technology. But most importantly because of DRIVEN & PASSIONATE entrepreneurs.
