Responding to the Scottish Government’s 2020-2021 Programme for Government, Energy UK’s Chief Executive, Emma Pinchbeck said:
“We welcome the Scottish Government’s focus on making our homes fit for a low carbon future – essential to reaching the 2045 Net Zero target. Installing energy efficiency measures and low carbon heating systems will create thousands of new skilled jobs and opportunities right across the country.
“As the Programme sets out, a Green Recovery can deliver widespread economic as well as environmental benefits. We are pleased to see the support for new energy technologies like low carbon hydrogen, which will play a crucial role in decarbonising the whole economy – and create jobs in Scotland and across the UK.”
