There will also be an optional visit to see the upgraded facilities at the Hydrogen Office in Methil.
This is a significant upgrade, which includes solar panels in addition to the wind turbine, upgraded electrolyser, and two new refuellers for the fleet of 17 hydrogen vehicles.
The hardware is all controlled by a sophisticated Toshiba energy management system, and the project has been made possible through the Local Energy Challenge Fund.
