Vision, innovation and investment into a new, better integrated energy system will help Scotland meet carbon targets, create jobs and secure an international leadership position says a new report from the Carbon Trust.
The report - Scotland’s innovation potential to realise a new integrated energy system - outlines a vision for Scotland to harness its abundant natural resources and world class technology innovation capabilities to develop a dynamic, smart, energy efficient energy system.
According to the Carbon Trust there is now a great opportunity for Scotland to create a new joined up energy strategy to help realise this vision. This would result in Scotland developing a smart energy system grounded by the principle of integrating the energy vectors of power, heat and transportation. This has the potential to not only deliver energy security and jobs at home but provide exportable expertise for international energy markets.
