    Given my love of African safaris, I am familiar with the term 'the big five' to describe the animals you should see. The easiest of these to spot is the elephant, but for two hundred years we have used the expression 'the elephant in the room' to describe things that should be tackled but are too frequently ignored. That is what lies behind my title of 'Elephants in Energy'. I intend to address my view of the big five elephants in the Scottish energy policy environment.
