Scottish Renewables sets out renewable energy’s contribution to Scotland

Industry body Scottish Renewables published its Scottish Renewable Energy Festival report on 23 September, setting out renewable energy’s contribution to Scotland in five key areas: innovation, jobs, communities, climate and the rural economy.

The report highlights that there are 17,700 renewable energy-related jobs in Scotland and highlights several community energy projects in the country, such as the community-owned grid-connected wind farms on the Isle of Gigha.

The Scottish Renewable Energy Festival, organised by Scottish Renewables, showcases the sector and launched on 16 September.

Claire Mack, Chief Executive of Scottish Renewables, said: “The Scottish Renewable Energy Festival provides a chance for our 260 members, as well as our industry’s wider supply chain, to celebrate their contribution to five areas which make Scotland what it is today.”
