IPFA UK: Glasgow: The Scottish Energy Strategy - A Roadmap for the Future?
About the course
The Scottish Government has developed a new energy strategy for Scotland - published in draft in January 2017 it sits alongside the draft Climate Change Plan for consultation. The Climate Change Plan (previously known as RPP3) will set out the government’s policies and proposals for meeting its climate change targets to 2032; and the energy sector will be a critical part of that. The strategy will be a visionary statement of the Scottish Government’s plans for low carbon energy production and use – demonstrating how to facilitate and capitalise on the transition to a low carbon economy. It will bring together separate policy initiatives for the first time into one coherent narrative – aligning Scottish Government energy policy toward a common purpose. Through the strategy; the Scottish Government are keen to present a strong vision for the future energy system in Scotland (to 2050) – providing clear signals of its long term energy priorities to prospective investors.
