Securing Scotland's energy future

A briefing by the IET Engineering Policy Group Scotland.


The major challenges facing the energy sector globally are securing energy supplies, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The transition to a low carbon economy is a massive long-term challenge that can only be tackled using a diverse portfolio of technologies. The next 10-15 years will be critical for the demonstration and deployment of large scale low-carbon technologies for power generation, for example carbon capture and storage, and for renewable sources of energy such as wind and wave.
