The Government of Scotland has inaugurated 2 consultation to aid in the generation of wind energy capacity and make their way towards net-zero objectives.
Both consultations are open for 14 weeks. They will close on Wednesday, the 25th of March, next year. Their purpose is to familiarize the pipeline with future offshore wind development and to amplify the comprehension of the company’s part in obtaining carbon-neutral status.
Paul Wheelhouse, the Energy Minister of Scotland, stated that earlier in 2019 the government of Scotland called for a climate emergency and stated their devotion to establishing themselves as a net-zero emissions economy and society by 2045. This objective will need considerable growth in the present supply of renewable electricity as they look to decarbonize heat and transport systems.
Paul Wheelhouse said: “Scotland is recognised internationally as a country with high ambition in terms of decarbonization of our economy and we are determined to build on our reputation as a renewable energy powerhouse.
“We aim to provide a supportive policy environment for offshore wind and leasing opportunities across our 462,000 km2 of seas that can sustain a healthy pipeline of sustainable projects capable of unlocking investment in the supply chain and providing both clean energy and opportunities for long term operations and maintenance jobs for coastal communities.
