Energy Park Fife given ┬ú13m funding
Energy Park, a 134-acre site in Fife, is a key project as part of Scotland’s drive to become the world-leader in the renewable energy sector. The Scottish Enterprise board has recently approved over ┬ú13 million funding for the next phase of the scheme.
Speaking to Property Executive, Jim Mather, Minister for Enterprise, Energy and Tourism said:
“We want all areas of Scotland to be able to fully harness our vast potential for cheap, clean and green electricity. Maximizing that potential brings huge economic and community benefit and this massive investment will enable the Fife Energy Park to further develop, creating hundreds of local jobs.”
“With its close proximity to the offshore windfarm leasing sites in the North Sea, the park is ideally placed to serve the European offshore wind market and attract innovative cutting edge companies looking to expand in Europe.”
