This is the original version of the Renewables Action Plan and you may wish to read it alongside the most recent update to see what progress has been made since then.
On 30 June 2011, the 2020 Routemap for Renewable Energy in Scotland, to drive forward the renewables revolution, and to meet this Government's world-leading green energy targets, was launched by Energy Minister Fergus Ewing. The Routemap is an update and extension to this Renewables Action Plan 2009.
The original Renewables Action Plan (below) set out short term actions towards the delivery of 2020 targets for renewable energy. The updated and expanded Routemap reflects the challenge of our new target to meet an equivalent of 100% demand for electricity from renewable energy by 2020, as well as our target of 11% renewable heat.
