Scottish European Green Energy Centre
The Scottish European Green Energy Centre (SEGEC) was established in recognition of the economic, social and environmental opportunities offered by the lowcarbon energy sector. Our mission is to help Scotland exploit its considerable potential in this sector by encouraging stronger engagement at a European and global level.
We take a strategic approach to identifying European opportunities in order to help Scottish organisations develop projects, access funding and overcome the barriers to wider adoption of low-carbon energy.
SEGEC provides a focal point and catalyst for Scotlandâ€™s low-carbon energy activity, facilitating collaboration, identifying expertise and connecting the sectorâ€™s community. We encourage new research and the commercial application of research outcomes, build capacity for collaborative working within the business, academic and public sector communities; and identify and disseminate good practice.
Our work directly contributes to Scottish and EU energy policy, in terms of long-term security of supply, increasing the amount of energy generated from renewable sources, supporting cleaner and more efficient energy generation, and developing the European energy market.
Established in 2009, SEGEC has delivered over â‚¬150M of EU funding for low-carbon energy projects. An independent, not-for-profit organisation, SEGEC is supported by the Scottish Government, ERDF, Scottish Enterprise, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and ScottishPower.
