Project story

Scottish Enterprise, Scotland’s main economic development agency, appointed us as the lead consultant for the low carbon infrastructure programme (LCIP) to identify and support the development of energy saving projects across the country.

In that role, we identified multiple project opportunities and worked with Scottish businesses and local authorities to develop innovative solutions that will reduce their energy costs and carbon emissions.

Our remit enabled us to explore opportunities with airports, universities, industrial firms, manufacturing companies, business parks and ports - providing technical modelling around long-term sustainable solutions.

By using our expertise and experience in developing the feasibility of similar schemes and in project managing bespoke best practice energy infrastructure solutions, we helped Scottish Enterprise to take carbon reduction to new heights and create a legacy that will benefit businesses, the environment and the community for many years.
