WWF says Scotland could confidently end emissions by 2045

WWF Scotland has stated that Scotland has a variety of options to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045. Published on 23 January, its report – A Climate of Possibility: Harnessing Scotland’s Natural Resources to end our Contribution to Climate Change – found that the power, transport and buildings sectors can all achieve zero or near-zero emissions.

The report identified carbon capture and storage (CCS) retrofits of existing gas capacity, coordinated with industrial CCS infrastructure, to likely be the least cost solution. Action in buildings to improve insulation and switching to electricity, and potentially hydrogen, as energy sources were highlighted as “particularly urgent”.
