    First Minister tours new green energy hub in Stirling

    Written by on August 7, 2019

    The First Minister visited the site in Stirling

    A new £6 million project in Stirling will provide heat for the local community – that’s been generated from waste water.

    It’s estimated the energy hub will save over 380 tonnes of carbon a year – that’s the equivalent of an average car being driven for 1.5 million miles.

    The Stirling District Heat Network will deliver low-carbon heat and energy cost savings to a number of public buildings, including The Peak , Forthbank Stadium, St Modan’s High School and organisations such as Zero Waste Scotland and Volunteer Scotland.

    First Minister Nicola Sturgeon toured the facility at Forthside earlier.

    She commented, “Earlier this year Scotland became one of the first countries in the world to acknowledge the fact that we are facing a global climate emergency, and it is only right that we take appropriate action.

    “I am proud of the bold, innovative and world-leading policies we are implementing to address the climate crisis we face.

    “The Stirling District Heat Network project is a fantastic example of this, using waste water to help provide energy to local public buildings and businesses.

    “It is a great demonstration of how we can work collaboratively to make a real difference.”

    Stirling Council Leader, Councillor Scott Farmer, said, “Making Stirling the first place in the UK to harness this mix of cutting-edge renewable technologies shows Stirling Council is determined to lead the way on tackling climate change by reducing our carbon emissions
    and improving energy efficiency.

    “This innovative initiative will deliver cost-saving benefits to the council and residents, generate additional income for many years to come and benefit communities in the form of regeneration and jobs in the growing renewables sector.”

    Scottish Water Chief Executive Douglas Millican accompanied the First Minister on her tour of the facility.

    He added, “Sustainability is vital for homes, businesses and services and using the energy from waste water is a great example of using resources to their maximum benefit.

    “This new scheme in Stirling will go a long way towards helping reduce our carbon footprint and protecting the environment.”
