The Scottish government wants 50% of Scotland’s entire energy needs to come from renewables by 2030, thereby cutting the country’s reliance on North Sea oil and gas. Severin Carrell, the Guardian’s Scotland editor, reports there has been a significant shift of emphasis by the Scottish National party which, after championing North Sea production for decades, recently unveiled a new energy strategy intended to push motorists, homeowners and businesses into using low- or zero-carbon green-energy sources for half their energy needs by 2030. Currently, 47% of Scotland’s total energy use comes from petroleum products extracted from Scotland’s North Sea oil platforms, and 27% from natural gas. Courtesy of Guardian News and Media Ltd.
