NORTH-EAST renewable-energy consultant Jigsaw Energy said yesterday it had won three contracts worth a combined £1.4million.
The Banchory-based firm will provide project-management services for biomass developments which will heat more than 200 Aberdeenshire homes.
The company will oversee the installation of district heating networks at Tarland and Tarves, plus an extension of the system at Hill of Banchory.
Jigsaw signed the deals with energy-supply company Hobesco, which will own the heating installations.
Jigsaw director George Wood said: “As we grow our business in line with the rapidly expanding biomass market, these significant contract wins are a testament to the high level of technical expertise that we bring to the table and the significant benefits of biomass and district heating to communities, whether economically, environmentally and socially, throughout Scotland.”
The European Union’s energy commissioner Guenther Oettinger said yesterday that he believed the cost of renewables would eventually match traditional energy sources.
