Scotland is set to sign a renewable energy deal with Abu Dhabi’s huge renewable company, Masdar.
The First Minister Alex Salmond will attend the World Future Energy Summit in the Middle East next week where he will sign the deal.
Under the first agreement of its kind between Masdar and an individual nation, Scotland is set to develop new green energy products in the renewable sector.
Dr Sultan Al Jaber, CEO of Masdar said: “Masdar is pleased to partner with Scotland on a number of upcoming renewable energy initiatives. We discussed a number of areas of collaboration and I look forward to working closely with him over the coming months to move these ideas forward.”
