Economics & Markets

Scottish Renewables works on behalf of our members with relevant government and regulatory bodies to secure stable and effective financial support mechanisms to build and strengthen markets and allow the industry to attract the investment to meet or exceed energy and climate targets. The energy market continues to go through substantial changes:

  • Europe is moving towards an integrated energy market;
  • In the UK, the electricity market is undergoing its biggest reform since privatisation, and
  • The renewable heat market is still in its relative infancy, but needs to see substantial growth to meet targets.

We work to:

  • Secure the optimum fiscal framework for the growth of renewable heat and electricity through regular engagement with key decision makers
  • Represent the industry across a range of government and agency groups on members’ behalf
  • Lead thinking and communicate the benefits of renewable energy to the media, politicians and policy makers
  • Engage regularly with members to understand the main economics and markets issues facing their sector
  • Provide updates on industry and policy information to our members, and publish key statistics on our website
  • Hold regular conferences and Network events for members to discuss key issues and foster discussion and networking
