ParkPower has been selected as one of 5 innovative UK Rethinking Parks prototype projects. This is an exciting opportunity to lead the development and delivery of this project.
Generating energy from parks can provide clean, green local energy; connect consumers with their park (and energy supply); and produce an income stream which can be reinvested in our greenspaces. The ParkPower project will develop a strategic GIS based approach to identify and monetise the best energy generation and storage options for parks and greenspaces.
We are looking to recruit an experienced Project Manager to lead and manage the development and delivery of the ParkPower project. With a strong track record in renewable energy or sustainable development, the ideal candidate will be an experienced project manager, committed to collaborative partnership working, bringing analytical skills, creativity, innovation and enthusiasm to work with our partners to turn the ParkPower concept into a reality.
greenspace scotland provides a national lead for local action on greenspace to regenerate and revitalise places and communities. Our goal is that everyone living and working in urban Scotland has easy access to a quality greenspace which meets local needs and improves their quality of life. We work with a wide range of local and national partners to support the planning, development and sustainable management of greenspaces and green networks as a key part of the green infrastructure of our towns and cities. Key priorities in recent years have included pioneering new approaches to the management and resourcing of greenspace and parks.
