Scotland has always been a known name in the energy market as a very sustainable nation. Scotland’s rise to this level of sustainability is due to the combined efforts of the people as well as the government.
With Scotland making more and more progress in the renewable and clean energy field it is already leading in the race of going 100 percent renewable and clean before the world which also competition from Sweden and other nations. New figures published by YouGov on behalf of trade body Scottish Renewables suggest more Scots are aware of the sources of energy production in the country than five years ago. The new figures, released to mark the start of the Scottish Renewable Energy Festival on 16th September, reveal 47% of 1,002 Scottish adults say they think more about the sustainability of the type of energy with which their home is powered now compared to five years ago. Claire Mack, chief executive of Scottish Renewables, stated that as climate change has increased in prominence with the Paris Agreement, the Scottish Government’s declaration of a climate emergency, the actions of groups like Extinction Rebellion and the announcement that the UN’s 26th climate change conference will be held in Glasgow, Scots’ knowledge of the provenance of their power has risen.
With the Scottish Renewable Energy festival is aimed at amplifying the innovations in the renewable energy field also it is to create more awareness about renewable energy and also to educate people about the subject.
