Energy Policy – Scotland

A growing number of people in Scotland want to see stronger action on climate change, according to a poll. Results from a survey by WWF Scotland show an increase in the percentage of those calling for more investment, renewable energy sources and a reduction in emissions. The data comes as a new Climate Change Bill is out for public consultation, and around 1,000 Scots were surveyed in May and June for the WWF study. More than three-quarters, 76 per cent, of respondents said the Scottish Government should reduce climate change emissions by “investing more in improving the energy efficiency of homes across Scotland”, up from 67 per cent in 2016. A total of 68 per cent said they want the Government to invest in projects that reduce emissions, up from 59 per cent in 2016. There were 72 per cent who believe more should be d one to help people heat their homes from renewable sources. Only 59 per cent thought so in the previous year.
