Heat harnessed from wastewater from Scottish Water's treatment works in Forthside is being used to heat a number of buildings in the Forthside area of Stirling.
The first of its kind in the UK, the £6 million scheme uses a unique mix of cutting-edge technologies to take heat from wastewater and turn it into low carbon, low cost heating.
Heat harnessed from wastewater is processed through an on-site energy centre and then distributed along Stirling Council’s district heat network.
The network also provides heating to nearby The Peak Leisure Centre, Forthbank Stadium Conference Centre and St Modan’s High School. The network was been designed so that there is future potential for expansion to include more businesses and nearby housing.
