End is in sight for EnAlgae (European algae project)

2015 is the final year for the EnAlgae project, and after four years’ study, experimentation and dissemination the end is now very firmly in sight. Partners working on the project are busy finishing off reports and working on presenting their final conclusions. This will come to fruition when the project holds its final close-out conference in the Autumn. The event is due to take place in Brussels on 29th and 30th September. Further details on this event will be published in due course.

Laborelec is contributing to EnAlgae by helping to define and develop the decision support tool, a major output of the project. The tool will be used provide investors and policy-makers with the necessary means to tailor algal-based energy solutions to particular physical and social conditions within NWE.
