Renewable Energy Discussion Event

Event Date:

Watch the latest in a series of Reform Scotland events in the run-up to the election in partnership with the Scottish Policy Foundation.

With climate change now universally accepted as a global crisis it has become central to policy-making and debate. The Scottish government has made a legally binding pledge that Scotland will reach net zero by 2045, while later this year Glasgow will host world leaders at the high-profile COP26 conference.

The issue of renewable energy is also at the forefront of the Holyrood election campaign – including SNP promises to develop hydrogen technology and decarbonise heating systems, and Scottish Labour’s publication of a ‘Climate Recovery plan’.

Our guests for this event were:

  • Stuart Paton, chair of H2Green and author of a new Reform Scotland analysis of Scotland’s renewable energy sector
  • Nicola Gordon, president of the Scottish Energy Form and board member, SEPA

This is the last in a series of pre-election reports and events in partnership between Reform Scotland and the Scottish Policy Foundation, an independent, apolitical grant-making charitable foundation that works to promote objective policy research in order to inform public debate. 

This event took place before an audience over Zoom on Monday 26th April.
