Summary

Glenrothes’ £24m district heating network has officially opened.

The network, built in central Glenrothes, a small town in Fife, provides low carbon heating to Fife House complex, Rothes Halls and the sheltered housing complex at Jubilee Grove by using the steam from the RWE biomass CHP plant at nearby Markinch.
