Fund for development of renewables in Scotland


A £6m fund to support renewable energy developments in the east of Scotland has been set up.
The Sigma Sustainable Energies Fund is financed by a range of partners from the public and private sectors, including ScottishPower and Scottish & Southern Energy.
It will consider energy-related projects that will stimulate growth in the renewables sector. A wide range of fields will be covered including wind, solar, hydro-electric, biomass and ocean. As much as £500,000 will be donated by each of the partners in the fund.
The Sigma Sustainable Energies Fund will also consider projects that develop home and community power systems, fuel cells and energy storage.
