Why Scotland?

  • Why Scotland?

    Low carbon technology
    Scotland has recently announced £60m fund to accelerate innovation in new low-carbon technologies by 2020 such as electricity battery storage, sustainable heating systems and electric vehicle charging.

    Climate change plan
    In February 2018, Cabinet Secretary for Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform published The Climate Change Plan:Third Report on Policies and Proposals, which details how the Scottish Government will achieve its current emissions reduction target of 80% by 2032.

  • Scotland's Energy Strategy

    The Scottish Energy Strategy, launched on 20 December 2017, sets a 2030 energy mix target for the equivalent of 50% of heat, transport and electricity to be supplied from renewable sources – a doubling of current installed renewables capacity; plus a new energy productivity target.

    £80m is promised to support low-carbon initiatives and policy backing for on- and offshore wind, wave, tidal and other technologies. The strategy sets out two scenarios for 2050 – one focused on low-carbon electricity and the other based on hydrogen.

    Each of the six strategic priority areas has short-term deliverables from which you and your company could benefit by showcasing your products and services in November:

    • Consumer engagement and protection
    • Energy Efficiency
    • Renewable and low carbon solutions
    • Innovative local energy systems
    • System security and flexibility
    • Building on Scotland’s oil and gas industry strengths
    • We are considering a revolution in transport, the built environment and the smart networks and technologies that underpin a modern energy system.

      • Chris Stark, Director for Energy and Climate Change
      • Scottish Government
    • I want us to be world leaders in developing new low carbon energy technologies and embrace social changes that will reduce our emissions.
