Gensource, a leader in sustainable energy solutions, has embarked on an ambitious initiative to integrate both solar and wind energy into Edinburgh’s historic Scott Monument.

The project, steered by Historic Environment Scotland and Scott Wind, aims to elevate the monument to net-zero emissions.

The venture will introduce a solar energy façade system, consisting of 287 solar panels, symbolising each ascent to the monument’s peak. Complementing this, a first-of-a-kind wind turbine will crown the structure, creating a hybrid renewable energy solution with the solar façade expected to generate approximately 143,000 Watts on its own.
