Drawing on the region’s expertise in engineering, fabrication and decommissioning, the Port of Dundee allowed the energy industry to flourish.

The port is an operations and maintenance base for many oil and gas and offshore wind installations, including the Neart na Gaoithe windfarm located 15.5km off the shore of Fife.

The Centre for Energy, Petroleum and Mineral Law & Policy at University of Dundee is one of the leading graduate schools in the field of international energy law and policy, attracting students from around the globe.

The James Hutton Institute has developed tools which can help policymakers analyse the economics of renewable energy sources like anaerobic digestion, which sees micro-organisms break down biodegradable material to produce biogas and bio-fertilisers.
