Green Energy
Powering our innovations

At MSIP we offer the supply of low carbon energy options, delivered from sustainable sources. With wind, steam and solar energy, there are different options for different needs.

The benefits of this to those that chose to locate here are clear. As well as being cost effective, most of the capital-intensive energy infrastructure required to have this already exists or is currently being put in place by us. Meaning you can access green energy, at no additional cost to your business.

This green energy offer is an attractive asset that can be utilised best by those that have significant electricity or heat requirements. If that is you, come and join us at MSIP.

Wind Turbines

Low carbon electricity is available from two sustainable sources, on-site wind generation through two wind turbines and via a private wire connection with MEB, a neighbouring Energy from Waste plant located on the west border of the Parc. Each of these sources has the potential to deliver a significant reduction in the unit cost of electricity, compared to direct purchase from the Grid.

Steam and Electrical Power

The nearby MEB plant is configured to provide sustainable heat to MSIP through a steam pipeline, with a backup heat source provided to cover during outage periods of the MEB plant. Further options for this can also be explored based upon specific requirements.

Solar Power

As well as offering extensive space, several of our workshops offer the opportunity to place solar panels on the roof to generate power.

By placing lenses on the large roof areas of these workshops, you can convert sunlight energy into electricity, indirectly using the concentrated solar power and create an electric current.

Solar power generation at MSIP offers another energy source that is much more cost effective than alternative sources and fits well within the low carbon green energy options we have.

Reducing our Carbon Footprint

We are active in reducing the carbon impact of industrial processes and premises and improving energy productivity.

The green energy supply fits with what we want to achieve, a low carbon future that has sustainable solutions to the environmental problems of today.

Further optimisation of our renewable energy is continually being explored.

MSIP will help to drive Scotland’s green recovery from Covid-19 and on to becoming a net-zero society
