The Scottish Government has published its draft Energy Strategy and Just Transition Plan and the consultation is now open for responses.

The draft Energy Strategy and Just Transition Plan sets out the Scottish Government’s plan to transform the way Scotland generates, transports and uses energy. This presents a huge opportunity to deliver maximum benefits to Scotland’s people, workers, communities and economy from our vast renewable energy resource.

The draft strategy and plan sets out the scale of this opportunity and provides clarity on how Scotland will prepare for a Just Energy Transition.

The Scottish Government is seeking views on its plan and invites communities, workers, citizens and businesses to engage in the process of designing Scotland’s energy transition. The consultation on the Strategy and Plan runs until Tuesday 4 April 2023.
