The views expressed on the Policy Platform are not those of Scottish Energy News.
Our policy is, and enduringly remains, to be independent, impartial and non-partisan.
Scottish Energy News exists to help support the industry – in every sector. It does not, and will not, favour any one, peculiar source of energy over another in its editorial policy (no matter how sincerely and fervently they may believe that they have the ‘ one magic bullet’ that will solve the trilemma / quadrilemma).
It is up to all stakeholders in the Scottish energy industry – from manufacturers in the supply chain, to generators, to wholesalers, retailers, consumers – and other interested bodies – to determine their best interests through the free market process.
Ergo, Scottish Energy News welcomes expert contributions for publication on our POLICY PLATFORM PAGE/s from all interested stakeholders.
