Northern Isles New Energy Solutions (NINES) aims to deliver a secure, affordable and reliable energy system for Shetland.

The Shetland islands are not connected to the national electricity network, and the  power station which meets most of the current energy demand is ageing.  This presents an opportunity to investigate how Shetland’s energy demand can be met in a more efficient and sustainable manner. This coincides with the ability and desire to meet more of our energy needs from renewable sources.
