The Energy sector is an important part of the future for Dundee and the wider local economy, encompassing: offshore wind; oil & gas; decommissioning - as well as emerging and growing areas such as hydrogen, electric vehicles and the wider sustainability agenda.
Dundee is an ideal location for investment and growth in the energy sector - the city lies on the east coast of Scotland, equidistant from Edinburgh and Aberdeen. The Port of Dundee offers easy access to the North Sea and all points inland and the city's airport is conveniently located less than 3km from the city centre and within 5km of the port.
Development in this sector is driven by the demand for lower energy costs, increased sustainability and to attract investment and jobs into the region. Dundee has taken a collaborative approach to unlock business opportunities for Dundee and the wider region by forming a strategic partnership between the public, private and academic sectors, known as Energy Dundee.
Dundee is being promoted as a centre of green business and is seen as a frontrunner in the low-carbon economy due to the city's commitment to low-carbon transport/electric vehicle integration and involvement in transport projects, such as the development of hydrogen fuel cell technology. In addition, the city is home to the largest urban wind turbines in Europe operating at the Michelin Tyre Factory and has recently introduced an incentive of free car parking for all registered, pure electric vehicles.
