The Nuclear Free Local Authorities (NFLA) publishes today its response to a call for views on the potential development of a Scottish publicly-owned energy company (POEC). NFLA supports the concept of such a body as the focus for promoting further renewable energy, energy efficiency and energy storage schemes in Scotland, but it does need to be approached carefully and with full consideration. The NFLA responds to a call for views from the Scottish Parliament’s Economy, Jobs and Fair Work Committee. The Committee is analysing the merits or otherwise of a Scottish Energy Company to be able to penetrate a crowded market, and other benefits such an organisation could have in Scotland.
