Ardyne Estates Energy Masterplan Case Study

Project Info

Project Description

Arch Henderson were commissioned by the project funders to develop the masterplan for the regeneration of a coastal industrial site in western Scotland. The masterplan included reusing a disused heavy industrial site and adjacent agricultural land for light industrial purposes as well as organic farming. One of the key aims of the masterplan was to deliver a sustainable business with low carbon energy sources and to pilot the use of innovative and emerging energy technologies.

Our Role

ITPEnergised (ITPE) worked with the main anchor tenant to identify and evaluate low and zero carbon energy options for the site. The feasibility assessment considered the potential for a number of technologies including;

  • Gas fired CHP
  • Wave
  • Tidal
  • Hydro
  • Wind
  • Solar PV
  • Solar thermal
  • Fuel cells; central or decentralised
  • Energy from Waste
  • Energy storage
  • Biomass and/or Biomass CHP
  • Heat pumps
  • Geothermal
  • Absorption cooling

The findings of the evaluations were presented in a review report which considered each technology in the context of criteria including;

  • Benefits
  • Barriers
  • Incentives available
  • Technology maturity/risk
  • Supply chain maturity and after sales support
  • High level costs and typical ROI
