Local energy policy statement

This local energy policy statement containing set of key principles and associated outcomes represents the values we wish to see adopted.


To set out the approach 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.  

It 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, supported by strong partnership working and collaboration at a local community level.   

This approach aligns with the Scottish Government's overall vision for recovering 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.
