A Scottish renewable energy project has been shortlisted for a UK national award from a total of 124 entries from 29 countries.

Bright Green Hydrogen has been selected as one of the finalists in the Energy Institute’s community initiative award for its Levenmouth Community Energy Project.

Malcolm Brinded, President of the Energy Institute and Head Judge for the Energy Excellence Award commented: “The EI Awards is a prestigious competition within the energy sector, which attracts high-calibre entries from around the globe, and demonstrates the vast amount of innovation and progress being made to shape the safe, reliable, affordable and sustainable energy system the world needs – so congratulations to all those who have been shortlisted.”

The overall winners will be announced in London in November 2017.
