It aims to increase energy efficiency, reduce CO2 emissions and boost the use of renewable energy sources. A consortium of companies  is rolling out state-of-the-art technologies in smart metering, communications and systems, network automation, generation and storage, and smart recharging infrastructure for e-vehicles. The aims are to improve the management of energy in the city, improve demand balances, and involve all participants in the electricity system, from generation to consumption.

Report on meeting in Kirkaldy, Scotland

We loved our trip to Kirkaldy. So great to see a Scottish college aspiring and implementing measures to become more sustainable. One of the highlight for us was Elaines presentation, Hairdressing Heroes. It was great to see someone making the environment understandable and relevant for students and teachers across Scotland. We also loves that Adam Smith college hairdressing and media sectors are working with colleges across the EU to improve and expand their knowledge in sustainability.
We are grateful to have been asked to be involved in such a worthy event and hope something wonderful can come out of networking with like minded people across EU and that many other colleges follow suit to Adam Smith colleges example. on another note we would also like to say that we enjoyed our fabulous meal rotunda and were so impressed by the talented team efforts at the training college restaurant.

On Wedneday a visit was planned to the factory of Jan Eskildsenof the Hair team company from Aarhus, Denmark. Jan has worked as a hairdresser. It was his own experience that brought him the idea to develop a line of hairproducts without harmful substances. hair The problems related to allergies and hormonal disorders have long been associated with the ingredients of modern products. But it gave him serious concerns that hairdressers have a higher risk areas, such as bladder cancer and other forms of cancer.This encouraged him to proceed with the development of sustainable products for the beauty industry.
