GIB to fund energy efficiency projects at Scottish distilleries

The UK Green Investment Bank has provided £5m for energy efficiency projects at Scottish whisky distilleries.

£2.5m will be used to replace heavy fuel boilers with biomass systems.

The Aberfeldy distillery in Perthshire will be among those taking advantage of the funding.

GIB said Aberfeldy will use biomass boiler technology and systems with engineering and installation works kicking off immediately.

GIB group operations director Rob Cormie said: “Projects like this can help distilleries to save money and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. I would encourage other distilleries to install a biomass boiler or other energy saving technology – an investment to make long-term savings and to help to meet the industry’s ambitious green targets.”
