Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme: supported projects 2017

The Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme (LCITP), supported by the European Regional Development Funding (ERDF), is accelerating the development and delivery of low-carbon infrastructure projects across Scotland.

Transformational low carbon infrastructure demonstrator

The TLC Demonstrator has been specifically designed to support the delivery of transformational low carbon infrastructure projects in Scotland. The focus of this Invitation for Funding is on offered to projects that have the ability to demonstrate innovative technologies and/or business models, which have the potential to be replicated in other parts of Scotland and have a transformational impact on achieving our climate change ambitions. Following assessment, 13 projects have been offered financial support. The total SG LCITP capital support offered to projects is £43.5 million. Details of the supported projects are provided below.

Innovative local energy systems

As part of the Scottish Government's Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme, an invitation to apply for funds to support Innovative Local Energy Systems has been designed to support and accelerate the development and delivery of innovative, local low carbon energy opportunities across Scotland. In particular, it aims to support solutions in rural and remote parts of Scotland, smaller towns and settlements, and areas that are off gas grid.

This invite is for Stage 1 support (up to £100,000) and will focus on developing full, investment-ready business proposals. Projects must provide 50% match funding, business proposals funded by this support must be completed by March 2018.

In addition, two projects have been approved for immediate capital support to deliver demonstrator projects by December 2018.
