The Scottish government has called on investors to back more than £1bn of low carbon, eco-friendly and recycling investment opportunities.
Its Green Investment Portfolio, launched on 9 September, is aiming to promote market-ready projects that will help Scotland to transition to a net zero economy by 2045 and are seeking private capital. The first release of the portfolio – which will be expanded over time to include £3bn of projects – consists of 10 projects, carrying a collective £1.16bn of investment potential.
Among these projects is the £250mn Aberdeen hydrogen infrastructure development programme to turn the city green. Aberdeen City Council is seeking long-term investment and development partners for the programme across housing, heating and transport sectors. It is open to a variety of investor involvement to include debt and equity partners, co-investment, and development funding.
