Electricity Market Reform

Electricity Market Reform (EMR) represents the largest reform of the electricity market since privatisation.  These reforms are fundamental to the energy sector, both for Scotland and for the rest of the UK.  A programme of joint working continues between the Scottish Government and the UK Government on all aspects of EMR.  The Scottish Government is committed to ensuring that this process delivers a low carbon future for Scotland, with value for consumers and certainty for investors.

More information on the proposals can be found on the Department of Energy and Climate Change website:
