The Scottish Solar Energy Group (SSEG)

Description: 

The Scottish Solar Energy Group (SSEG) exists to promote solar interests in Scotland, as a means of reducing national reliance upon environmentally polluting, non-renewable fossil based fuels whilst enhancing the health, comfort and safety within internal working and living environments. Membership is open to all with an interest in solar energy. Applications are especially welcome from teachers, researchers, building and services design professionals, component manufacturers, system suppliers and students.

SSEG events include regular visits to solar projects, meetings, talks and participation in energy related conferences and competitions. Whilst the SSEG is a wholly autonomous body, it has excellent contacts with national organisations such as Solar Energy Society, the Solar Energy Society of Ireland, the British Wind Energy Association, the Energy Design Advisory Service, the Association of Scottish Schools of Architecture and many others.
