It was fantastic to host an in-person Supply Chain Networking event on Thursday 24th February 2022 at the Bridge Innovation centre in Pembroke Dock, Pembrokeshire. It has been some time (almost two years) since we last held a similar event in Anglesey, North Wales. The event also had the option for virtual attendance, this hybrid format was a first for the selkie organisers and we included our online participants as much as was possible, although they missed out on some delicious refreshments!

The event highlighted the momentum Marine Renewable Energy continues to gather and the promise it holds for reducing carbon emissions. It was inspiring to hear of the innovative projects within Pembrokeshire. We hope you have a better knowledge of the range of open source decision support tools Selkie have to offer to save time and costs with R&D and encourage SMEs to join our network.
There is certainly much to look forward to locally and nationally as we transition to cleaner and greener energy generation.
