Scottish Renewables responds to the granting of consent for a biomass combined heat and power plant in Rosyth

"This consent is great news for the renewables industry in Scotland – and particularly for the growing renewable heat sector."

Responding to news that the Scottish Government has granted consent for a wood fuelled renewable combined heat and power (CHP) plant at the Port of Rosyth, Stephanie Clark, Policy Manager at Scottish Renewables, said:


"This consent is great news for the renewables industry in Scotland – and particularly for the growing renewable heat sector. Biomass can play an important role in Scotland's energy mix and combined heat and power plants like Rosyth will help to meet our renewable energy targets as well as reducing carbon emissions.

"News that the project will provide around 70 operational jobs during its lifetime, and up to 500 during the construction phase, are also welcome, and will add to the 11,695 people recent Scottish Renewables' research revealed are already in full-time employment in the industry in Scotland."
