Levenmouth Community Energy Project
This highly innovative project, which is delivered by key partners Bright Green Hydrogen, Toshiba and Fife Council, has provided the perfect location for Toshiba to engage their technology with innovative green hydrogen applications.
It also demonstrates how we can use locally produced hydrogen to reduce both CO2 and toxic emissions, which is a vital part of meeting Scotland’s climate change targets. It is also hoped that the project will increase economic growth and reduce fuel poverty in the area.
The project showcases to other business parks a route to operating from a renewable microgrid and provides the opportunity for local businesses and community organisations to have access to zero emission vehicles.
