Client: James Hutton Institute
Project Stages: Feasibility
Technology Type: Anaerobic Digestion, Geothermal, Solar & Wind
Project Type: Options Appraisal, Local Energy System
Beginning in 2014, Scene have been working in close coordination with an industry leading agricultural institute – the James Hutton Institute. The JHI has a vision for Hartwood to become a potential model for a Scottish post-carbon farm. This would be done through the development of renewable energy production alongside the continuing sustainable farming on the site.
As head of the project team, assessing the viability of the site and technological options, Scene have provided key technical services - from feasibility assessment to community and business engagement. The project includes multiple potential renewable technologies, such as mine-water driven geothermal district heating, anaerobic digestion, wind and solar generation.
