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 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
