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.
It’s being supported with £8.559m from the Scottish Government’s Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme and is a collaborative project between Fife Council and RWE.
Scotland’s Energy Minister, Paul Wheelhouse, opened the network on Thursday (April 25).
