MSP Calls for Ambition on Renewable Heat and on Transport

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP, Stewart Stevenson has called for consideration of the findings of ‘The Energy of Scotland’ report on renewable heat and transport.

Mr Stevenson spoke during a Parliamentary debate on climate change targets and the findings of the recent ‘Energy of Scotland’ report. Mr Stevenson drew attention to the challenges that both renewable heat and transport and the importance of putting attention there. He went on to highlight the need to persuade people of new ways of working.
Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said,

“Scotland has already made incredible progress on climate emissions and renewable energy – especially electricity. However, significant gains can be made in heat and transport. The ‘Energy of Scotland’ report does the important task of showing us additional opportunities.

“We continue to lead on climate change and the UK as a whole has led on climate change. Unfortunately, Scotland’s leadership is meeting challenges due the UK Government’s recent policy failures on renewable energy.

“This process is not simple. As Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Climate Change I encountered the challenges first hand. Part of our work is creating a society that is prepared to embrace sustainable solutions to transport and heat. There’s a lot of work to do and we need UK policy to help facilitate that work."
