At the end of 2017 the Scottish Government published Scotland’s first Energy Strategy; setting out the vision for the future energy system in Scotland and articulating several priorities for a whole-system energy approach considering both the use and supply of energy for heat, power and transport. Our Energy Strategy commits us to the equivalent of 50% of the energy for Scotland’s heat, transport and electricity consumption to be supplied from renewable sources by 2030, and to a 30% increase in the productivity of energy use across the Scottish economy. The energy strategy proposes a smarter, more coordinated, approach to planning and meeting distinct local energy needs; and seeks to capitalise on the world-leading work already undertaken in in Scotland to develop local energy systems ? especially in remoter areas and islands where a reliance on off-grid and smarter localised solutions is pressing. The shift to renewable generation in areas with little or no spare grid capacity has led to innovation in business and network management  with Scotland’s communities and islands playing an increasingly active part alongside the private and public sector.
