Chair's comment

Committee chair Pete Wishart said:

"Scotland can be rightly proud of its record on renewable energy, as it has surpassed fossil fuels and nuclear to become our principal electricity source. In this session we will be hearing from Scottish Renewables, which represents the industry, and three other organisations involved with in the renewables sector.

We will be asking them about the Government's strategy for supporting the renewables sector in Scotland, and in particular whether they have any concerns regarding recent reductions in government subsidy."
