Scottish Renewables post-referendum paper

Scottish Renewables has set out what it calls Scotland’s green energy companies’ requirements in a new post-referendum paper called ‘Harnessing Scotland’s Energy’.

The document outlines six key areas following Scotland’s independence vote including the further devolution of energy sector powers to Scotland.

Niall Stuart, chief executive, Scottish Renewables, said: “Given the importance of the contribution that Scotland and the other devolved nations will make to the UK’s energy ambitions, and the growing importance of the sector to all our economies, we believe it is time for a more coordinated and strategic approach to the formation of energy policy across the UK.”

Mr Stuart has also called for getting the grid connections to Shetland, Orkney and the Western Isles in place by 2020 and changes in the UK energy watchdog, Ofgem, to ensure greater alignment between the energy policies of the UK and Scotland.
