Round 2 Projects

Round 2 projects to be supported by the Green Economy Fund:

Projects in East/Central Scotland

Supporting the decarbonisation of transport:

  • Transport for Edinburgh – providing numerous docking points for the Edinburgh Cycle Hire Scheme both across and out with the city centre, to support the spread of the scheme to more areas and the forthcoming e-bikes.
  • Food train – replacing its diesel vans with electric models, to deliver weekly grocery shopping to over 500 older people in central Scotland.
  • Forth Environment Link – expanding the region’s e-bike sharing scheme with the installation over 40 new electric bikes and 4 charging stations in Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannanshire.

Supporting the decarbonisation of heat:

  • West Lothian Civic Centre – making the Livingston Civic Centre more sustainable by installing solar panels, EV charging points, battery storage technology and LED lighting.
  • Sunamp – delivering 5 innovative DSR-enabled micro-district heating networks in Central Scotland, providing heat to 20 properties.
  • Little Kerse Leisure Ltd – making its premises energy efficient by replacing floodlights with LED versions and creating a community hub with the introduction of EV charging points and battery storage infrastructure.

Supporting the education of Scotland’s workforce for a greener future

  • Forth Valley College – creating a STEM Hub for colleges across its three local authority areas, Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannanshire, where students, businesses and the public can learn about renewables and energy efficiency.

Projects in the West of Scotland

Supporting the decarbonisation of transport:

  • Western Buses Limited TA Stagecoach West Scotland – introducing a fleet of zero emission single decker buses to operate the service between Kilmarnock and Priestland.
  • The Rural Development Trust – bringing electric vehicles to rural South Lanarkshire by generating and storing electricity for use in three new electric vehicles which will demonstrate EV use in rural community transport.
  • Coalfield Community Transport – purchasing an electric minibus to provide transport for vulnerable people, including the elderly and disabled people, in Cumnock and rural East Ayrshire.
  • PeddleSMART – funding the design, development and testing of a range of electric pedal vehicle models. The funding will see through all stages of product development and bring six bikes to the streets.
  • Glasgow City Council – investing in two electric buses, which the council will use in its provision of social transport. This will see the Council and Community Transport working together, through a Public Social Partnership (PSP) and aims to improve air quality across Glasgow.
  • Soulriders - launch a fleet of e cargo bikes, providing Scotland’s first integrated cargo bike delivery and waste service in Govanhill, Pollokshields and Central Glasgow.

Supporting the decarbonisation of heat:

  • The HALO Kilmarnock – delivering a sustainable low carbon energy system, using 100% renewable energy, to service businesses and the residential community at The HALO Kilmarnock. This project is an innovative urban regeneration initiative that is set to revitalise the centre of Kilmarnock and support the growth and resilience of the Ayrshire economy through the training and re-skilling of the young people of Ayrshire.
  • University of Strathclyde – implementing a new initiative that combines 5G communications technology and smart metering to manage energy usage across residential heat network and homes without existing metering services.
  • Auchengray Church Centre Trust – supporting the refurbishment of the community centre in South Lanarkshire, with low-carbon heating and insulation.
  • Agile City CIC – converting North Glasgow’s Civic House into a low-carbon community hub and learning space. It will provide workspaces, workshop, cafe and venue that will host a programme of activity that support cross-disciplinary learning, experimentation and critical dialogue.

Projects in the South of Scotland

Supporting the decarbonisation of transport:

  • Dumfries and Galloway Council – introducing two Electric Refuse Collection Vehicles in place of some ageing diesel RCV’s they currently have.

Supporting the decarbonisation of heat:

  • Warmworks – creating a ‘virtual power plant’ in Dumfries and Galloway, by installing battery storage technology in 150 off-gas homes in the Stewartry area, and in doing so, help reduce residents’ energy bills.
  • KPT Development Trust – building a hydroelectric scheme to generate power for the rural communities of Keir, Penpont and Tynron, located in the southwest of Scotland.

Supporting the education of Scotland’s workforce for a greener future

  • Energy Skills Partnership – developing an Energy Efficient Training Network to provide specialised training in renewable and energy efficiency for students and industry.

    *All projects are subject to due diligence and final assessments
