Time for Action

Scotland has a simple choice. Do nothing and accept another decade of economic stagnation, or get building fast.
To become energy secure by the end of the decade, Scotland will need to:

  • Create new Clean Energy Zones where new renewable projects get fast-track planning permission.
  • Reduce the statutory planning timetable for clean energy projects to one year.
  • Lift Scotland’s effective ban on safe, reliable, low-carbon nuclear.
  • Publish a new siting strategy for Small Modular Reactors to secure Scotland’s industrial future.
  • Boost grid investment by reforming regulation to allow anticipatory investments necessary to unlock renewables.
