Renewables & Low Carbon Tech
Renewable energy and low carbon technology industries represent a key sector in Fife.
In order to maximise the potential of the natural environment, the long-term strategy is to create sustainable economic growth in this developing area, including offshore wind, wave and fuel cell technologies.
Fife is working to position itself as a centre of excellence for green energies and renewables in Scotland. Efforts to support the sector include businesses in manufacturing, research and service facilities.
Energy Park Fife
Energy Park Fife has been developed for companies working in the renewable and oil and gas energy sectors and associated supply chains. It aims to create a world-leading hub for manufacturing and research activity in renewable energy and has attracted major companies.
It encompasses a manufacturing site, Methil Docks, Methil Docks Business Park and the site of the former Methil Power Station. It is already home to Burntisland Fabrications, The Hydrogen Office and the Renewables Innovation Centre.
The Fife Renewable Innovation Centre provides incubator units for start-up businesses looking to enter the renewable energy sector, plus facilities to give businesses access to research, expertise and support.
The Hydrogen Office is expected to become one of Europe's leading locations for the development of renewable technology due to the state-of-the-art demonstration and research facility powered by hydrogen fuel cell technology.
