First Minister Humza Yousaf has unveiled his Cabinet team with five members aged under 40 and, for the first time ever, a majority of women.

Responding, Claire Mack, Chief Executive of Scottish Renewables, said: 

“Scotland’s renewable energy potential is one of the country’s most valuable assets and industry and government have a long history of working closely together to ensure that it is tapped in a way which best benefits our environment, economy and communities.

“Cooperation between industry and government is essential if we are to overcome the hurdles facing our industry, from planning and consenting both on and offshore to tackling the enormous opportunity, and challenge, of decarbonising heat.

“We look forward to working with the new Cabinet Secretaries and Ministers as they develop their knowledge of renewables and build relationships with the clean energy businesses which are delivering a just transition to a clean energy system.”
