Renewables Centre

Renewables Centre

Our Renewables and Energy Efficiency Centre is housed at our Granton Campus. The centre was opened in partnership with SP Energy Networks, the Energy Skills Partnership and Worcester Bosch and aims to upskill and reskill current and future professionals in green technologies. 

About the Centre

The centre comprises a range of equipment which will be used in construction and the house-building sector now, and in years to come with the aim of helping us to save energy and move towards a net zero future.

The College received funding from Scottish Power Energy Networks and the Energy Skills Partnership to fund some of the renewable technology equipment housed at this centre.

In addition, the College has become a long-term strategic partner of Worcester Bosch which has supplied additional state-of-the art equipment, some of which is not yet commercially available. 

The Centre’s Aim  

This training facility allows students, apprentices and those already in industry, to learn how to use cutting edge equipment and learn key skills required to build low energy homes, and to modify existing homes to become more energy efficient. 

It's critical that students, apprentices and those within the supply chain learn these technologies so they can embed them early in their careers, understand them and start to use these technologies to build houses for the future.
