STA Scotland: Key solar asks for the Scottish Government

The STA Scotland Asks are aimed at bridging the gap to Scotland's 2020 100% renewable electricity target.

In drafting a new Energy Strategy for Scotland and to meet its 2020 100% renewable electricity target, it is clear that Scotland needs significantly more solar. The STA Scotland Asks demonstrate how the Scottish Government can pave the way for a solar transformation in Scotland. The 20 asks are aimed at bridging the gap to the early 2020s when solar is expected to become one of the first subsidy free renewable technologies.
