Fife continues to lead the way in Scotland’s energy sector as it wins two awards at this year’s Scottish Green Energy Awards.
- Levenmouth Community Energy Project won the Carbon Reduction Award
- Barbara Whiting, Fife Council’s Lead Officer for Renewables, was crowned Champion of Renewables.
Councillor David Graham, Vice-Convener for the Environment, Protective Services and Community Safety Committee welcomed the news. “Well done to Barbara and the Levenmouth Community Energy Project for very well-deserved wins.
“I’m delighted that our staff and projects are receiving national recognition. It’s clear to me that in Fife we have a wealth of talent and ambition to continue taking the renewables industry forward.”
The Levenmouth Community Energy Project is a collaborative initiative led by Bright Green Hydrogen and supported by a number of partners including Fife Council and Toshiba, working to develop the Hydrogen Office in Methil into the world’s foremost demonstrator of innovative applications of hydrogen derived from renewable sources.
The winners of this year’s Scottish Renewables Scottish Green Energy Awards were announced in Edinburgh last Thursday (30 November).
Claire Mack, Chief Executive of Scottish Renewables, said: “This year’s Scottish Green Energy Award winners are helping Scotland change the way it thinks about energy – something that’s going to be increasingly important in the future.
“They’re creating the organisations, projects and mindsets that we’ll need to tackle climate change, while continuing to power Scotland’s economy.
