Promoting Unst Renewable Energy (PURE) project
The pioneering PURE project is situated on the windswept island of Unst, the most northerly island in the British Isles. The PURE project demonstrates how wind power and hydrogen technology can be combined to provide the energy needs for a remote rural industrial estate. It has been developed by the Unst Partnership Ltd., a community development agency established by the Unst Community Council to support local economic development and regeneration. The Unst Partnership saw the project as helping to address some of the principal needs of the community. In laying the foundations in Unst of an embryonic hydrogen economy, the PURE Project has created jobs, new business opportunities, and attracted new technical skills to the island.
