Decarbonising our energy supply is at the heart of the challenge to prevent the worst impacts of climate change. This report shows that it is possible to have a clean, green energy supply in Scotland. By 2030 renewable energy can meet between 60% and 143% of Scotland’s projected annual electricity demand, depending of the level of investment in energy saving and new renewables. The analysis also demonstrates that it is entirely plausible that no large-scale fossil ﬁred generating capacity would remain online by 2030.
