Draft Energy Strategy Published and Consultation Launched

The Scottish Government’s draft Scottish Energy Strategy was published on 24 January. Included is a new target to deliver the equivalent of 50 per cent of the energy required for Scotland’s heat, transport and electricity needs from renewable sources by 2030. A consultation on the draft Energy Strategy will run until 30 May 2017.

Building on the draft Climate Change Plan, published last week, the draft Energy Strategy sets out the Scottish Government’s vision for the future energy system in Scotland, for the period to 2050. It describes the priorities for an integrated approach to delivering a low carbon energy system and considers both the use and the supply of energy for heat, power and transport.

Consultation on the draft Energy Strategy runs until 30 May 2017, and an overview of the strategy is available here.

Alongside the draft Energy Strategy, the Scottish Government are additionally consulting on a draft Onshore Wind Policy Statement; Scotland’s Energy Efficiency Programme; and Local Heat and Energy Efficiency Strategies, and Regulation of District Heating
