Renewables Action Plan

An action plan to drive the development of renewable energy and capitalise on Scotland's natural resources to derive maximum economic benefit. A Strategic Environmental Assessment of the plan has been carried out.

The Renewables Action Plan identifies collective actions by government, its agencies and partners, to ensure at least a fifth of Scotland's energy comes from renewables by 2020. The Plan will:

  • Kickstart a renewable heat industry to massively increase take up
  • Identify necessary infrastructure projects and options to deliver them
  • Get the skills mix right to maximise potential and attract investment
