Coronavirus / Events Q&A

What has happened?

In order to protect the health of our members and delegates, and because coronavirus restrictions were impacting the quality of the programme, we have chosen to deliver our programme of events on a fully-virtual platform until further notice.

We are proud of the part that our event series plays in Scotland’s renewable energy industry and understand its importance to delegates. These decisions are taken between Scottish Renewables’ team and our elected Board, and are not made lightly.

The events section of our website and this document will always contain the most up-to-date information on our events programme, and will outline our protocols for returning to in-person events when it becomes safe to do so.

What about member Forums?

Our member Forums are one of the main ways in which our members feed into Scottish Renewables policy work, which is continuing as usual.

All member Forums, which you can find listed on our website, will proceed virtually as we continue to monitor the latest health advice available.

Announcements on any changes to that plan will be made by email to the relevant Forums. Please check the Forums page on our website for the most up-to-date information on these important member events.

What effect will the coronavirus have on the operation of Scottish Renewables?

Scottish Renewables will continue to operate as normal.

We have robust business continuity plans in place for unforeseen events and all our staff are now (as of 25 March 2020) working from home.

Please use the Meet the Team page on our website to find mobile numbers for Policy, Communications and Events team members, or use email as normal to contact us about the issues which matter to you. 

Our work with Scottish and UK Governments and the media continues during the coronavirus outbreak, and all meetings are continuing virtually. Our Monthly Briefing emails are published on our website and detail our work in this area.

Scottish Renewables members will continue to receive Forum emails containing policy updates and requests for input, as well as our Daily and Monthly Briefing emails.
