Fife has been described as being at the forefront of renewable energy and innovation by Fife Council, which has paid a special visit to the Boathouse in Aberdour to meet with the companies helping to grow the region’s position as a global leader in renewables.
Depute leader and executive spokesperson for Economy and Planning Cllr Lesley Laird met with renewable energy specialists 2-B Energy, BVG Associates, CHEEVC and newcomer Everoze, a technical and commercial energy consultancy.
Everoze’s opening a new office in Aberdour in January has given the Kingdom a further boost, according to the Council, which is developing its reputation as the leading local authority in Scotland for its work in promoting the renewables sector.
Cllr Laird said: “Fife is at the forefront of renewable energy and innovation. Everoze’s growth in Scotland and specifically, Fife, reinforces our position.
“Fife has a lot to offer businesses, and we aspire to be the best place to do business. Everoze are recognised globally for their expertise, and this investment in Fife is a positive boost for the Kingdom. The renewables and energy sectors are going through a period of technical, economic and regulatory change, and this expansion reinforces the region’s reputation as a centre of excellence for this rapidly evolving and dynamic sector.”
Everoze’s move to Aberdour is in response to a growing demand for consultancy services in the renewables market in Scotland, despite a tough regulatory environment in the broader UK context. Company partner for Everoze, Joe Philips, said: “We have ambitious growth plans here. Fife gives us great access to our clients in Glasgow and Edinburgh.”
