Scotland though being a small insignificant nation over the years is now all the craze in the energy sector all thanks to its amazing approach to the sector and some ahead of time projects in the energy sector.
Scotland is relentlessly pursuing its goal of going 100 percent renewable energy run nation. New developments have come to light that will help in reducing emissions and tackle climate change could no longer need planning permission under draft proposals considered by the Scottish Government. Projects that could automatically get the go-ahead in Scotland include local renewable energy and electric vehicle (EV) charging points which are becoming an important part of the new renewable infrastructure. Members of the Scottish Parliament voted in favor of the Scottish Government’s ambition for net-zero emissions by 2045. The draft proposals being considered as part of a new action plan to implement a radical shake-up of planning laws include measures to empower people, communities, and organizations so that they too get involved in planning as well as proposals to deliver more affordable homes in rural areas. A draft of National Planning Framework 4 (NPF4) is expected to be published for public consultation in the third quarter of 2020, following a period of “extensive engagement” earlier in the year.
With these kinds of motivating policies, the Scottish government is aiding the people to adapt to a more sustainable way of living without causing any discomfort in the transition process. This decision of the Scots is set to take the nation 20 years into the future and ahead of the world in the energy game.
