Ravenscraig to pilot low carbon technologies following funding boost
May 11 2011
The cash windfall will support a series of low carbon projects across Scotland over the next three years by supporting firms assessing the feasibility of new techniques through application in four full scale demonstrator homes.
BRE is currently inviting proposals for homes which tackle affordability, energy efficiency, use of recycled materials, carbon emissions and sustainable construction.
Jim Fitzsimons, project director at ravenscraig Ltd, said: ““This funding from the ERDF via Edinburgh Napier University will allow companies at the forefront of low carbon research to see their innovations in a real life setting – bringing new technologies to market, benefiting the Scottish economy and identifying Ravenscraig with ambition, originality and cutting-edge design.”
Funding was awarded via Edinburgh Napier’s Institute for Sustainable Construction with additional revenue being provided by Scottish Enterprise and the Scottish Funding Council.
The demonstrator homes are scheduled to complete by 2016.
