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.
