Westminster MPs to start parliamentary inquiry into renewable energy in Scotland

Pete Wishart, MPThe Scottish Affairs Committee of Westminster MPs is due to start its inquiry into the renewable energy sector in Scotland by taking evidence tomorrow (24 Feb) from leaders of, among others, E3G, UK Energy Research Centre and the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation.

Pete Wishart, Chairman of the Scottish Affairs Committee, (and SNP MP for Perth & North Perthshire) (pictured, left) said: “Scotland can be rightly proud of its record on renewable energy, as it has surpassed fossil fuels and nuclear to become our principal electricity source.

“In this session we will be hearing from the association which represents the industry Scotland, and three other organisations involved with the renewables sector.

“We will be asking them about the Government’s strategy for supporting the renewables sector in Scotland, and in particular whether they have any concerns regarding recent reductions in government subsidy.”
