Masdar to ink tie-up with Scotland for renewables
Deal to see Scottish universities working with Masdar
Abu Dhabi and Scotland look set to strike a deal in order to boost the two nations’ renewables industries, which will see Scottish universities working with Abu Dhabi’s Masdar to work on wind, solar, wave and tidal technologies.
In a statement Alex Salmond, Scotland’s First Minister, said: “It is clear that the work Masdar is taking forward on leading us to a low-carbon society is in perfect synchronisation with the work we are doing here in Scotland. This is the first agreement of its kind between Masdar and an individual nation, and will work towards developing further university research into renewable energy.”
