Energetica, Scotland’s Energy Corridor, is a long-term economic development initiative that aims to create a world-class development cluster, to help attract and retain talent of all ages to this region for the foreseeable future. Focussed in one of Aberdeen City and Shire’s strategic growth areas, Energetica comprises a stunning coastal setting and improving infrastructure, and seeks to integrate two key components; sustainable economic growth and quality of life.
There is a regional ambition to grow Aberdeen City and Shire’s reputation as the location of choice for high-value economic activity in the four key sectors of Energy; Food and Drink; Life Sciences; and Tourism, and Energetica has been recognised as a key strand of realising that ambition.
The Energetica corridor stretches over 30-miles from Bridge of Don in Aberdeen, north to Peterhead and west around Aberdeen International Airport.
It is close to Europe’s largest offshore oil and gas resources; has ready access to energy industry know-how and an established supply chain; is well connected internationally by sea and air; is investing significantly in transport infrastructure and offers an award-winning quality of life, all set in a stunning coastal environment.
