The Scottish Energy Study comprises several volumes:

Volume 1 Energy in Scotland: Supply & Demand
Presenting data describing Scottish energy supply and demand, together with associated CO 2 emissions. Information is also given on how the data were derived.

Volume 2 A Changing Picture
Addressing how the Scottish energy picture has changed in recent years: the results derived in Volume 1 are compared with the findings of an earlier study based on 1990 data.

Volume 3 Energy Demand Database
A brief guide to an energy database: summarising Scottish energy use by sector.

Volume 4 Issues, Opportunities and Barriers
Considering the many factors that influence energy use in Scotland today. This volume considers key drivers. Based on this understanding it identifies the opportunities to improve energy use within Scotland and the barriers which must be overcome if this is to be achieved.

Volume 5 Looking Forward
Considering how Scotland's energy use could change in the medium term to 2020, using projections of demand and supply informed by different scenarios that will influence energy use in the future.
