Objectives The project will carry out the following tasks: Energy Yield Assessment of both sites from wind and solar generation.Hydrogen production feasibility at Glenmavis for blue and green hydrogen.Supporting infrastructure review of utilities required to supply potential developments, considering electricity, natural gas and water requirements. A planning review to consider local planning requirements and any potential development barriers.A reporting summary of all outcomes and recommendations. The project outputs include a summary report and a presentation of findings. The project proposal is outlined below: Task 1 – Energy Yield AssessmentInitial site screening assessment to determine local wind and solar resource (Glenmavis and Dunfermline sites).Site constraints map to determine opportunities for wind and solar development at both sites.­ Initial energy yield assessment combining outputs from site resource screening and overall development constraints map.Task 2 – Hydrogen Production Feasibility­ Initial assessment of capacity and scale of SMR blue hydrogen production feasible at Glenmavis site. This to include resource requirements in respect of power, gas, and water.­Assess green hydrogen supply production based on available on-site renewable energy resources.­ Summary position of technical feasibility of hydrogen outputs (blue and green).Task 3 – Supporting Infrastructure Review­Review of existing understanding of utilities serving Glenmavis site and available capacity in respect of grid electricity, potable water and gas connection infrastructure.Review of CO2 removal options from the Glenmavis site (high level pipeline routing options and commentary on crossing/planning issues that would need addressing.­Summary commentary of how current availability of relevant utilities impacts on technical feasibility of production.Task 4 – Planning ReviewReview of relevant local planning guidance and aspects of local development plan relevant to development at both sites.­Executive summary of planning showstoppers (if any) and outline of process by which proposed assets would follow to achieve planning and environmental consents.Task 5 – Reporting Summary­Technical report summary of findings and recommendations for Phase 2 study for discussion with SGN team.Deliverables­Masterplan summary Report: Summary of study tasks and outputs and recommendations for next steps in site development.­Presentation of findings: Summary presentation of key findings and proposal for next steps. The expected outputs from each task are as follows: Task 1 – Understanding of each sites capacity to support renewable energy production­Task 2 – Understanding of the Glenmavis sites potential scale of opportunities for blue and green hydrogen production­Task 3 – Understanding of constraints/opportunities of existing utilities­Task 4 – Understanding of planning requirements for specific projects­Task 5 – Understanding of optimised future site opportunities This project will undertake pre-concept work on the Glenmavis and Dunfermline sites to assess the use of integrated infrastructure in order to support wider SGN decarbonisation objectives. This project will assess the feasibility of, and quantify, the potential for blue and/or renewable energy/green hydrogen production at the Glenmavis site and the potential for renewable energy generation production at the Dunfermline site.
Abstract SGN own a number of sites across Scotland and the South of England, many of which sit largely underutilised but have significant potential for development as part of the end-to-end net zero gas network system of the future. This project will undertake pre-concept work on the Glenmavis and Dunfermline sites to assess the use of integrated infrastructure in order to support wider SGN decarbonisation objectives. This project proposes to assess the potential for blue and/or renewable energy/green hydrogen production at the Glenmavis site and the potential for renewable energy generation/green hydrogen production at the Dunfermline site.The major focus of this project is Glenmavis, which has significant potential to act as a key energy hub in SGNs vision for a net zero network in Scotland.
