Renewable energy in Scotland

Inquiry

We have launched an inquiry into renewable energy in Scotland just months before the world descends on Glasgow for November’s COP26 UN Climate Conference.

This inquiry is likely to examine: 

  • how ‘net-zero’ targets can be met by development of renewable energy in Scotland;
  • the technologies that would best serve Scotland and how challenges in their development can be overcome;
  • employment potential of renewables in Scotland and how a ‘just transition’ for oil and gas workers can be achieved; and
  • how the UK and Scottish Governments can work together to reach their green goals.
