And it’s all still free of charge

Unlike some regional / local publishers, Scottish Energy News  does not put a pay-wall ‘tax’ on your good news because we want to spread the good news about the Scottish energy industries, to share best practice and to help all sectors to grow.

In addition, you can use tweets about your company on Twitter @ScotEnergyNews to re-market yourselves – also all free of charge (and unlike some regional/ local publishers)

So if you/ your company is operating in Scotland and in energy, make sure you’re in the Scottish Energy News

Additonally, Scottish Energy News delivers the daily email bulletin to 5,000 energy professionals (in oil, gas and renewables) in the UK – and around the world in north America, EU and the Middle and Far East.

Readers include 75% of MSPs in the Scottish Parliament – and many more in Brussels and Westminster, as well as by industry association chiefs, company directors and senior executives, industry professionals, public sector bodies, regulators, industry professionals, think-tanks and trade unions.

Because of the global significance of Scotland’s oil, gas, tidal, wind, wave and other natural energy resources, Scottish Energy News provides a unique pan-global perspective. **

Furthermore, while Scottish Energy News is updated and published daily (Mon-Fri),  thousands of readers are still reading over the weekend on Saturdays and Sundays – especially for our longer-read BUSINESS PROFILE and POLICY PLATFORM articles on the website.
