Scotland’s ASLEE Project

December 14, 2017

The Atlantic coast of Scotland has some of the best renewable energy generation potential in Europe, but developments are being compromised by grid constraints. This is severely hindering economic development in some of their most vulnerable communities. New uses for electricity in areas that are currently grid constrained would enable an increase in both renewable energy use and industry — creating community resilience, income generation and employment.

The Algal Solutions for Local Energy Economy (ASLEE) project, one of nine chosen for funding support from the Scottish Government in the 2016 Local Energy Challenge Fund competition, will build experimental and industrial scale pilot units. This £2 million, 2-year R&D project will also investigate a number of further sites in the north and west of Scotland for potential future scale up. The ASLEE project will determine the economic and technical feasibility of using renewable energy and transactive load management to reduce the costs of algal biomanufacturing and enable grid balancing, and will investigate the wider economic and social impact that implementation of this technology could have in rural Scotland and beyond.
