Securing Scotland's energy future

IET factfile: Securing Scotland’s energy future

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.
