Electric buses and bin lorries, low-carbon heating for homes and training in renewable energy are among a raft of innovative green projects across central and southern Scotland set to share £20 million of funding. A total of 33 schemes will benefit from the cash, which comes from the Green Economy Fund set up by electricity distributor SP Energy Networks. The move is part of a major drive by the firm to help the country achieve its climate change target to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045. SP Energy Networks is also calling for Scottish businesses, councils and public bodies to follow suit and ramp up their efforts to battle global warming by investing in eco-friendly technologies.
