  • stimulate/drive collaboration and knowledge sharing
  • accelerate deployment and commercial development
  • secure benefits for Scotland
  • help maintain Scotland’s lead and promote Scottish facilities
  • strengthen investor confidence
  • join up existing initiatives and facilities
  • support innovations towards cost reduction
