Local energy policy statement

The Scottish Government wishes to promote to help and inform decisions of all those participating in, or developing local energy projects as Scotland’s energy system transitions to a low carbon future.

This Local Energy Policy Statement is underpinned by a set of key principles and associated outcomes that we wish to see adopted. They represent the values that will support a just, inclusive energy transition - one that has people at its centre and is supported by strong partnership working and collaboration at a local community level.

This approach aligns with the Scottish Government’s overall vision for recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic in a way that builds a fairer and greener society and economy.

An accompanying Delivery Framework will be taken forward by the Scottish Government and others to support the implementation of the statement.
