Community Energy Policy Statement

The Community Energy Policy Statement is a document which explains the Scottish Government’s commitment to helping local people across Scotland benefit from renewable energy – including wind, hydro, solar and other technologies. The document explores community groups owning renewable energy projects, working with commercial developers, and the possibility for more innovative projects. There is also detail on the existing support schemes provided by the Scottish Government.
