Community Energy

Rousay, Egilsay and Wyre


The three-island community of Rousay, Egilsay and Wyre is becoming more sustainable, enterprising and self-reliant, through managing a 900kW, income-generating wind turbine.

HIE supported the islands trust through our innovative community account management programme to employ a project officer to manage delivery and construction.

The trust’s current focus is demand-side management, and it is leading a project to help community-owned wind turbines generate more and use extra energy to power local projects.
