Abstract

The Scottish Government’s draft Energy Strategy has been broadly welcomed across different sectors of Scottish society. The document sets out ambitious targets for the long-term, sustained decarbonisation of Scotland’s economy and communities, and the government has been actively encouraging debate around its goals and framing.Against this backdrop, we invited experts from different energy sectors to participate in a roundtable discussion. This report describes some key outputs from the dialogue, which will be fed back to the government’s consultation. Our event sought to bring different perspectives around the table to explore potential pathways to a net zero carbon society by 2050. Of particular interest were three government ambitions, namely: 50% of all energy from renewables by 2030; 80% of domestic heat from low- carbon technologies by 2032; and commencing negative emissions from 2027.
