Background - Footnotes
1) National Records of Scotland (2011). Population Projections of Scotland (2010-based).
2) Scottish Government (2007). The Government Economic Strategy.
3) Scottish Government (2012). Scotland Performs Population Target.
4) The estimates from the Scottish Government's Quarterly GDP Publication measure GDP at basic prices, also referred to as Gross Value Added (GVA), which does not account for taxes or subsidies on products. The GDP index is produced in constant (2009) prices, meaning that the effect of price changes is removed from the estimates, and is seasonally adjusted.
5) Includes wind, wave, solar power, thermal renewables and hydroelectric (natural flow).
6) Pumped storage is not a renewable source of energy because it uses electricity produced by other means to create a store of hydrological power.
7) Scottish Parliament (2009). Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009.
8) The amount of electricity generated minus net exports (but including losses).
