General Election labour win

The Labour Party has today (July 5) won the General Election and will be invited by The King to form the next UK Government.

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

“As we welcome the new UK Government, Scotland’s renewable energy industry stands ready to play our part in a new era of collaboration and delivery.

"The time to secure our clean energy future is now. Maximising the enormous socio-economic potential of our renewable energy resources calls on the UK Government working in partnership with industry and the Scottish Government.

“This means delivering a coherent policy environment that says to investors and our supply chain that Scotland is the best place in the world to build the renewables projects that will deliver cleaner, cheaper and more secure energy.

“Scottish Renewables looks forward to working closely with the new UK Government on their clear mandate to unleash our full clean energy potential in the crucial years ahead."
