Energy

The renewable energy provided by JAHAMA Highland Estates is fundamental to our business. This is the reason the smelters in Fort William and Kinlochleven were established in this area, over 100 years ago, thanks to the widely-available natural energy, through hydropower.

We are looking to other forms of renewable energy now as well, such as biofuels and wind energy, which will help us sustain our GREENSTEEL and GREENALUMINIUM strategy for the future.

Hydropower is a core element in this strategy and having also recently added Green Highland Renewable to the business, the aim is to build or upgrade a number of hydro schemes in the Highlands by 2021, some of which will be on our 114,000-acre estate.

The wider GFG Alliance is reviewing offering ownership opportunities to local communities as part of its broader community involvement.
