Draft Energy Strategy is 'bold, ambitious and potentially transformative'

10/01/23 | Reaction

The Scottish Government today (January 10) published its draft Energy Strategy and Just Transition Plan.

Responding, Scottish Renewables' Director of Policy Morag Watson said:

The Scottish Government’s draft Energy Strategy and Just Transition Plan are bold, ambitious and potentially transformative pieces of work, and are to be welcomed as another important piece of the net-zero puzzle.

We are particularly encouraged by the government’s commitment to consult on increasing our ambition for offshore wind power and setting targets for solar and tidal and wave energy generation.

We must however remember that many barriers still stand in the way of our industry’s continued development, and that we need strong action – and all renewable energy technology options on the table - as we develop the low-carbon energy system of the future.

Finally, Scottish Renewables asked The Scottish Government to enhance export support for Scottish suppliers and are pleased to see a renewables export plan will be published in early 2023."
