Renewable energy consultation

Yet another consultation exercise has been announced by the Scottish Government. This time it has started consulting on changes to the Renewables Obligation (Scotland) Order 2010.

There are significant proposals for this important and growing sector of the economy, which can benefit many Scottish businesses.

On wave and tidal proposals, the Renewable Energy Association’s chief executive Gaynor Hartnell said: “This is good news for wave and tidal generators. This embryonic industry needs all the support it can get. The UK needs to act swiftly to maintain its leading position. We are at risk of losing out on an industry in which we could be world leaders, just as we did with wind energy in the 1980s, which went to the Danes and Germans. This move must be coupled with a consenting regime which facilitates, rather than frustrates developing projects in UK waters.”
