Energy Ethics 2023 Eden Campus Tours

Date: 5th June 2023
Times: 1200 & 1330

Eden Campus, home to a former paper mill, is the University’s new innovation campus in the village of Guardbridge, 4 miles from St Andrews. The site combines local energy production with new R&D facilities for energy and low carbon activity. It provides an ideal location to test and demonstrate whole-system approaches on a scale not possible in a laboratory.

Alongside our biomass plant and solar array at Eden Campus, we are able to provide the following facilities for working with industry:

  • R&D facilities to underpin novel research into energy storage and conversion, including development of new battery chemistries, now fuel cells, and the production and development of synthetic fuels and other chemicals through our proposed Power to X facility.
  • Premises and co-working facilities for university spin-outs, companies wishing to collaborate with university knowledge transfer, and companies looking for a place to locate their business.

Our two main facilities that are available to industry are the Eden Campus demonstrator (Battery scale up facility) and Translating Hydrogen into Action (hydrogen materials laboratory)

As part of the Energy Ethics conference, we can provide tours for groups of 10 around the Campus.  This will include the biomass plant, solar array, newly opened hydrogen materials laboratory and an overview of our state-of the-art battery scale-up facility.  Tours will last approximately an hour.

* The Translating Hydrogen into Action and Eden Campus Energy Demonstrator projects are both funded through European Regional Development Funds
