Scottish European Green Energy Centre
The Scottish European Green Energy Centre (SEGEC) provides a focal point for organisations in Europe developing low-carbon energy projects and activities.Â SEGEC engages with institutions, networks and technology platforms, influencing the future policy agenda and identifying niche opportunities for collaboration across different industry sectors.
SEGECâ€™s principal remit is to facilitate innovative, collaborative, low-carbon, infrastructure projects which deliver real benefits for Scotland, the UK and Europe.Â We do this by developing projects which meet key success criteria of partners, technology focus and market readiness and are correctly structured in order that they can be financed.
Due to the collaborative nature of the projects that it supports, SEGEC works to secure investments from a range of public grants and private sector funds including EU funding streams that have been allocated to support market and technology development.
Working with partners in Scotland, the UK and Europe, SEGEC maximises the potential to contribute to the European energy and emissions targets for 2020 and beyond.
Established in 2009, SEGEC has delivered over â‚¬110M of EU funding for low-carbon energy projects including the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre and Moray Firth Offshore HVDC Hub with other projects under development.
An independent, not-for-profit organisation, SEGEC is supported by the Scottish Government, the European Regional Development Fund, Scottish Enterprise, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, ScottishPower and SSE.
SEGECâ€™s energy priorities include, but are not limited to: Marine, CCS, renewable heat, grids, offshore wind and energy efficiency.
