Scottish Renewables Welcomes Community Benefit Register
14 September 2012
Welcoming the launch of the Community Benefit Register for renewables by the First Minister, Scottish Renewables’ Onshore Wind Policy Manager, Joss Blamire, said:
“The renewables industry in Scotland has already invested many millions of pounds into communities across the country through voluntary schemes known as community benefit.
“Community benefit schemes contribute towards vital projects in local areas such as new leisure facilities, education and training programmes and improvements to the local infrastructure and environment.
“This new register will help demonstrate the wide variety of benefits renewables projects are already providing local communities as well as giving practical advice to those communities wishing to learn more about how to access the benefits of renewable energy in their area.”
