Glenrothes Heat Network Named H&V Finalist

We would like to congratulate our clients, Fife Council and RWE on the news that Glenrothes Energy Network has been shortlisted in the District Heating category of this year’s H&V Awards.

The project is an exciting public/private partnership which takes waste heat from the RWE biomass plant in Markinch and uses it to heat businesses and homes in the town centre via a 6.3km district heating network.

This is a fantastic project which demonstrates the benefits which can be generated through public/private partnerships. This project will now result in significant carbon emission reductions of approximately 1,800 tonnes per year. but will also be instrumental in tackling local fuel poverty with the scheme expected to save £200,000 in heating bills over the next 10 years.
