Stevenson Celebrates Energy Action Scotland 30th Anniversary

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire and Buchan Coast has this week highlighted the contributions achieved by national charity group Energy Action Scotland.

Energy Action Scotland is a charity organization that campaigns to promote awareness of the issue of fuel poverty, researches the causes and effects, and secures public and private investment for effective solutions.

Celebration of the charity’s 30th anniversary comes amidst news this week that the Scottish Government has launched a campaign to raise awareness of the £74million fund allocated to help people with home heating bills.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said

“Energy Action Scotland looks for effective solutions, hounds Government and searches for private investment. We should all hold that national charity dear to our hearts in the present environment because, when we address fuel poverty, we also address employment and climate change.

“In my own constituency, the work of Energy Action Scotland has made all the difference to 31% of rural dwellers who are spending 10% or more of their income on fuel alone. Their research today paves the way for the solutions tomorrow

“On a global level, organizations such as these have not only secured Scotland’s role as a leading figure in the world’s struggle to combat carbon emissions… but has shaped a greener world for future generations

“Funding energy efficiency is a step in the right direction… but if we want to reach our goal of eradicating fuel poverty by 2016 we need the full powers of independence to address not just some, but all the causes of fuel poverty”
