The Scottish Government is launching a £60 million fund for low carbon infrastructure projects.

Projects that deliver low carbon heating solutions, integrated energy systems and ultra-low emission vehicle charging infrastructure can apply for up to £100,000 of funding.

Firms can also apply for up to 50% of the total value of a project up to a maximum of £10 million under the Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme.

Speaking ahead of the launch this evening, Scottish Climate Change Secretary Roseanna Cunningham said: “We have, first and foremost, a moral obligation to fight climate change. But for a nation with Scotland’s resources and skills, the transition to a more prosperous, low carbon and circular economy also presents a valuable economic opportunity.

“We are determined to attract, retain and develop the low carbon innovators who will shape our future.”
