The £90M Perth West project offers a strategic opportunity for purpose-driven investors and corporates to co-create a residential and commercial net-zero exemplar generating long term and sustainable benefits.
Driving business and place innovation in energy and mobility, it will facilitate a rethink of the way we live and move around cities, because it has been developed specifically with sustainability at its core.
The project will contribute to three of the Ten Points Plan for a green industrial revolution as it aims to develop greener buildings, decarbonise private car, commercial and logistics transport, and increase journeys of green public transport, cycling and walking.
Perth West aims to be a catalyst for the transition to Net Zero across Perth & Kinross and an exemplar project for the UK. The development comprises:
- The Perth Innovation Highway connecting smart city mobility and full fibre strategies with renewable energy sources.
- The Perth Eco Innovation Park with facilities over 25 hectares for advanced logistics, smart energy systems, and a Living Lab centre to host academic research.
- The DR.ECO solar park connecting 20MW of solar energy into smart grid networks serving the development.
- The Lamberkin Villages centred around community mobility hubs to promote active travel and wellbeing through blue-green infrastructure and the promotion of the 20 minute neighbourhood.
The Invest In Perth team is currently seeking interest from both existing and start-up businesses in all areas of smart investment. Boasting a reputation for excellence in renewable energies, local energy systems, low carbon transport and waste management Perth’s ambition is to become one of Europe’s most sustainable cities.
