Dr Roddy Yarr, Environment and Energy Officer for the University’s Environment Team, introduces the University’s plans for developing a low-carbon energy centre at the former Guardbridge paper mill site. The energy centre will produce biomass districting heating for the North Haugh campus and will achieve a step change in carbon reduction for the University’s overall carbon footprint. This is one of two major capital projects, the other being Kenly wind farm located a few miles south of St Andrews, which will help the University become carbon neutral by 2016.
