SNP manifesto promises oil and gas revenues to go into green transition fund

The SNP launched its General Election 2019 manifesto on 27 November, promising a net zero target of 2045 and for oil and gas revenue to go into a green transition fund.

The party also wants Scotland to be a leader of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology, pushing the UK government to accelerate the deployment of a CCS facility in Scotland.

Onshore wind and solar, the SNP argued, should be included in the Contracts for Difference auctions.
