SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT CONSIDERS MOVE AWAY FROM FOSSIL FUELS
By Stephen Smith, Employment Lawyer
A LEAKED paper by civil servants advises that Scotland should reduce its dependence on oil and gas, and instead increase use of renewable energy.
The document, obtained by the BBC, warns of the problems cause by "damaging, price-volatile fossil fuels" and suggests wind power should have a bigger role.
Wind turbines have caused protests across the north of Scotland and the oil industry has disputed previous Government estimates that fossil fuels could be exhausted in the North Sea in the current century.
The paper claims more renewable energy projects in Scotland would help win the battle for these to be accepted elsewhere in the UK.
It also reveals the Scottish government would like to maintain a UK-wide energy market after independence, rather than separate Scottish regulator being created – an important issue for oil companies.
The document says: "The shared regulation of a single GB-wide energy market, by the new Scottish regulator and the England and Wales regulator, presents the best approach for an independent Scotland.
"An independent Scotland will seek a new strategic energy partnership with the rest of the UK - a partnership of equals - where the UK and Scottish governments jointly steer policy towards the energy sector."
The document also claims renewable energy projects have more public support in Scotland than other parts of the UK.
"Higher levels of public acceptance of renewable energy developments in Scotland, including onshore wind, helps other parts of the UK, where public acceptance is more polarised," the document says.
"The transition to renewable energy reduces our dependence on damaging, price volatile fossil fuels, bringing greater stability in energy prices for consumers."
