Located 15 kilometres from Scotland’s north coast, the 20 islands of Orkney have undergone an energy revolution. No longer dependent on piping energy from the Mainland, Orkney now produces more energy than it consumes with a community-owned network of wave, tidal, and wind energy, backed up by storage. And the excess is sold back into the grid.

The story of Orkney’s 40-year renewable energy revolution has been captured in a compelling photo-journal published in The Ferret.
