EMEC And Gravitricity Pick Up Scottish Green Energy Awards

The title of this post, is the same as this article on

These are the first two paragraphs.

The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), energy storage innovator Gravitricity and Crown Estate Scotland were among the winners announced last night at the Scottish Green Energy Awards in Edinburgh.

EMEC won the Champion of Renewables award for its ocean energy test facility, while Gravitricity’s energy storage system, which uses excess electricity to winch weights to charge the system and then releases these when energy is required, was announced as the Best Innovation winner.

I am pleased, as I own a small part of Gravitricity, which I contributed through crowdfunding.
