Projects & Innovations
Finding new ways to maximise the benefits of renewable energy often means trialling emerging technologies, and making clever use of heat or power. By collaborating with Community Energy Scotland, communities, individuals and SMEs are taking a proactive role in achieving Scotland’s zero carbon goal. The experience we can bring to your project goes beyond the nuts and bolts of how to build a windfarm.
We can help right from inception, helping to grow your project from idea to fully functioning operation. We have a track record for delivering complex projects on tight budgets and timescales, without compromising on quality or community engagement.
